Crocker first to qualify for nationals since 2009
2019-04-02

For the first time since 2009, the Laurentian Voyageurs have qualified an athlete for the U Sports Track & Field Championships.

Cracking the top-12 in the country and posting the third best clocking in school history in the women's 3000m, Mgan Crocker earned a berth at the university nationals in Winnipeg last month.

She would finish 10th at the U Sports meet, her time of 10:11.23 just a second back of Katherine Marshal from the University of Toronto. Crocker had trouble recapturing the form that would lead her to an outstanding run of 10:02.38 at the OUA championships just two weeks earlier, a result that secured the L.U. veteran a fifth place finish at provincials.

Her showing was the highlight on a weekend that would produce a total of five top-ten finishes, four personal best performances and one school record for Laurentian representatives at York University in Toronto.

Crocker would account for two of the top ten finishes, sliding into 7th in the 1500m race (4:41.35), joined in the top ten by freshman Justin Graenert. The first year student eclipsed the mark that was held by Sudbury native Marc Poulin in the 600m dash (1:21.93), shaving roughly a half second off at 1:21.40, good for eighth place in Ontario.

Rounding out the top rankings was North Bay native Erin Hansel, who posted a personal best time of 2:58.70 in the 1000m (10th). Following is a breakdown of the remaining Voyageur athletes who competed at the OUA Championships:
