Forsey Gains NCAA All-American Honors

Jillian Forsey finished her 2014 university cross-country season with a brilliant 14th place at the Division 1 NCAA Cross-Country Running Finals iTerre Haute, Indiana on Saturday.

Running in what is almost certainly the strongest university field in the world, the 19 year-old from Kippens covered the 6 kilometre course in 20 minutes 17.9 seconds. Her performance earned her All-American honours.

Forsey was the first Canadian finisher and led her team to an 8th place out of 31 teams. More than 250 runners completed the race

Forsey Decisive

Jillian Forsey showed once again how tough they breed 'em on Newfoundland's west coast.

Running in the NCAA Division 1 Mid-Atlantic Regional cross country final in University Park PA, the 19 year-old sophomore at the University of West Virginia finished second over the 6 kilometre course in 20 minutes 18 seconds.

Forsey led her team to a second place finish out of 29 teams, securing a berth for the team in the NCAA Division 1 finals next weekend. 207 runners competed.
