2014 ACAA CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS

2014 ACAA CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 2014 Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association Cross Country Championships were hosted by Crandall University, and with the weather leading up to the finals proving to be less than desirable, this gave 44 runners the chance to run a true cross country course in Mapleton Park, Moncton, NB.  A motivated group of 44 male and female participants, which increased by 10 runners from the 2013 Championships, ran two great events on Saturday, October 25 at the final ACAA Men’s and Women’s meet of the year.  

With an impressive season, two runners were leading the ACAA pack all year, Hannah Arseneault (DAL AC) and John Beninger (MTA) were looking to run the table in the ACAA Cross Country Championships.  For John Beninger this would be his 2nd season where he has not lost a single ACAA Cross Country meet.
 
Twenty-three female runners participated in the 5km race and it was Hannah Arseaneault who finished first with a time of 17:44 minutes. The runner from Dalhousie University, Agricultural Campus (DAL AC) claimed her fourth consecutive victory, and was named ACAA All-Conference and 2014 ACAA Women's Champion.  Marya Peters, Claire Henderson-Hamilton and Maddy Burnett all representing MTA, rounded out the top four positions with times of 18:34, 18:35 and 19:38 minutes respectively being named ACAA All Conference runners. In the women's team competition, it was Mount Allison University accumulating 14 points, finishing five runners in the top seven to claim their third consecutive conference banner.  Second place went to DAL AC with 27 points, followed by third place tallying 58 points awarded to Holland College, and Université Sainte-Anne in fourth with 75 points.
 
Twenty-one runners participated in the men's 8km race, John Beninger, from Mount Allison University was able to capture his fourth consecutive victory with a chrono of 23:40 minutes.  John claimed his second consecutive ACAA Men's Champion plaque, and was named to the ACAA All-Conference team. Jonathan Craig of MTA finished in second with a time of 24:42, while claiming his second ACAA silver medal.  Oscar Moyles of DAL AC was able to claim third place finishing in 25:46 minutes, and Sam Clements of MTA rounded out the top four all conference runners with a time of 26:02.  Mount Allison was able to claim the team conference championship banner as well for the second consecutive year, with a team score of 15 points, followed by DAL AC's 30 points for second, and the Université Sainte-Anne finished in third with 61 points.

With her dedication to the sport, and desire to improve and motivate her runners, the coach of the year award went to DAL AC’s coach Joy Galloway-Jones.
Thank you for another fantastic season of perseverance, hard work and dedication.  We look forward to next year, in hopes of expanding the running field to 50 with even more ACAA schools participating.
