Kaba and Leroy shine in debut

A small contingent of University of Ottawa Gee-Gee athletes made their way to Ithaca, New York on Saturday for the Greg Page Relays on the campus of Cornell University. Highlighting the day’s activities was 2014 CIS Champion Sekou Kaba’s scorching opener in the 60 meter hurdles where he finished second in 7.92 seconds – his fastest career opener.

Another noteworthy performance was Anais Leroy’s third place finish in the 3000m. The University of Ottawa freshman completed her seven and a half laps in an impressive 9 minutes 54.89 seconds. The mark moves Leroy into second on the Gee Gees all time top ten list and qualifies her for the OUA Championships in February.

Next on the schedule for the Gee Gees is the Saints Relays this coming Saturday in Canton, New York at St. Lawrence University.
