Local Athletes Named All-Stars
A pair of Chatham athletes earned recognition from their respective leagues this week, being named all-stars.
Runner Josh Kellier of Chatham helped the Guelph Greyphons win an OUA cross country championship this past weekend, finishing 6th in the 10 km race with a time of 30:46.1.
The CKSS alumni was named an OUA first team all-star for his performance, and will compete with Guelph at the upcoming National Championships in British Columbia.
Chatham soccer player Daniel Grootenboer was also honoured recently, being named an OCAA West Division All-Star.
Grootenboer, an alumni of Chatham Christian, is in his 3rd year at Redeemer College studying kinesiology. Grootenboer, who is also a member of the Chatham Express, played centre back in the Royals defensive line this season.
Finally, Port Lambton’s Nathan Outridge, a WDSS alumni, was named an academic all-Canadian, for his academic performance last season. He is in his third season competing with the University of Windsor Lancers cross country team.
