Forsey second at the Canadian Cross-country Running Championship

Jillian Forsey, the Canadian junior cross-country running champion in 2012, concluded her 2013 season with an excellent second place finish in the junior championship in Vancouver on Saturday.  

The 18 year-old native of Kippens finished the wet and muddy five kilometre course in 18 minutes 2 seconds, securing her a place on the Canadian team for the 2014 North American, Central American and Caribbean(NACAC) cross country championships to be held in February in Trinidad. 

This marks the third year in succession that Forsey has been selected for the meet - a record for a Canadian junior woman.
