Gryphons cross-country/track and field coach Dave Scott-Thomas just keeps convincing top athletes to run for him.
The Gryphons have announced that they have recruited Genevieve Lalonde to join the cross country and track teams for next year. Lalonde, a native of Moncton, New Brunswick is widely acknowledged to be one of the top distance runners in North America and will give the Gryphons one of the best one-two punches with CIS Female Track Events Athlete of the Year and Guelph's top newsmaker and female athlete of the year, Lindsay Carson.
Lalonde was the Central American and North American Cross Country champion for 2009 and is expected to thrive under Scott-Thomas's tutelage.
The Gryphons track and cross country teams will undoubtedly continue to dominate the national stage and truly be the brightest spot in Gryphons athletics.
Stay tuned for more information on the Lalonde recruitment, hopefully including comments from both herself and Scott-Thomas in next week's edition of The Ontarion.
