Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon blew the doors off in his rookie track and field season for the Simon Fraser University Clan.
The 19-year-old, in his first-year of competition in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference at the NCAA Division II-level, brought home a major award to cap off the shortened season.
Lauzon was named the GNAC male freshman of the year, with several standout performances. He set a GNAC record in the 200m in a time of 21.47 seconds, at an event in Boston. That broke his own record of 21.51 and he was one of only three runners in the conference to break a record in 2020.
Lauzon also won gold in the 200m at the GNAC Championships, finishing in 21.71 seconds.
