Rewind Day 7: Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Championship: Laval Rouge et Or

Never had a university cross-country team captured both national banners on home turf. The Laval University Rouge et Or made history in Quebec City, finishing atop the podium in the men’s and women’s races at the U SPORTS Championship, becoming the first team to capture both national banners on home turf.

Led by individual champion Jessy Lacourse, the Rouge et Or women’s team placed four runners in the Top 10, well ahead of Western and Guelph who took team silver and bronze, respectively.
