Sanguin dashes to title

Jodi Sanguin put the cap on her Canadian Colleges Athletic Association career in style.

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — Jodi Sanguin put the cap on her Canadian Colleges Athletic Association career in style.

The Red Deer College star captured the CCAA cross-country running title Saturday in a real battle with Vicky Siemon of Humber College of Toronto.

Sanquin trailed Siemon by two seconds heading into the final two-kilometres of the 5km race, but pulled away when it mattered to finish in 18 minutes 13 seconds, three seconds ahead of Siemon.

Richelle Moore of St. Lawrence College of Kingston, Ont., was third at 18:44.

It was the fifth time Sanguin competed in the CCAA final and the fifth time she made the All-Canadian team.

She finished fourth in 2007, seventh in 2008, and second in both 2009 and 2010.

Humber College won the women’s team title with 56 points while Grant MacEwan had 66 and RDC 67.

Ontario won the women’s conference title with 29 points, 10 ahead of the ACAC and 27 up on Quebec.

Jesslyn Begin finished 20th for RDC at 20:09 with Melissa Cable in 23rd (20:18), Meagan Beauchamp 45th (21:28) and Catherine Alcorn 51st (21:42).

Andrew Pohl of Camrose’s Augustana won the 8km men’s race in 25:30.

RDC didn’t have any runners in that race.
