Cross Country wants to ‘leave a legacy’

Queen’s Cross Country had a season to remember, but it’s the team bonds they will never forget—theirs is a story of legacy creation.  
It’s been an accomplished season for the cross-country team so far, with the men currently ranked fifth and the women ranked sixth in Canada.
Former provost Tom Harris called a cross country team member’s response to the forced removal of former coach Steve Boyd from the OUA championships “cult behaviour,” according to dozens of emails obtained by The Journal through a freedom of information request.
On Monday, the Queen’s cross country team sat down with Principal Patrick Deane and the newly-instated provost Mark Green to discuss Steve Boyd’s firing.
This past weekend, the track and field team headed to the OUA Championship meet with high hopes, but without their Head Coach Steve Boyd.
More than half of Queen’s cross country running team could quit if Steve Boyd, the recently-fired head coach, isn’t reinstated, The Journal has learned.
Kara Blair has made an incredible leap forward over the last year, and her individual accomplishments—highlighted by a fourth-place finish at this year’s nationals—helped push the top-ranked Queen’s cross-country team into championship territory.
After three consecutive years of U SPORTS silver medal finishes, the Queen’s women’s cross-country team finally prevailed as national gold medalists for the first time in school history.
The Gaels raced in Montreal, Quebec at the annual RSEQ/AUS Interlock meet, where they reaffirmed their top spot in the national rankings.
Last year set the expectations high for Queen’s cross country program. After outstanding races in London, Ontario and Pennsylvania, they might be even higher.
While Kingston’s Fort Henry hills are some of the most difficult in Canada, little could prepare Makenna Fitzgerald and Brogan MacDougall for what hit them at the World Cross Country Championships last Saturday in Aarhus, Denmark.
Makenna Fitzgerald looked around, trying not to let the imposter syndrome take over—“What am I doing here?” she thought to herself.
Kingston and Trinidad and Tobago have two very different climates, especially in February.
According to Brant Stachel, a positive culture defines an athlete’s success. If his career is any indication, that philosophy holds credence. 
The men’s cross-country team’s roster will see no shortage of local talent next season. 
Last fall, Brogan MacDougall had her choice of school at her fingertips—all she had to do was give the nod.
Going into this weekend’s U Sports National Championships, cross country head coach Steve Boyd said it’s no secret: they can win everything.
