GRAND MERE, Que — Jullien Flynn, a distance runner from McGill University, won the women’s individual title at the RSEQ cross-country championships at the Grand Mere Golf and Country Club, Saturday.
The 21-year-old biology senior from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., was first of 59 women entered in the competition, completing the six-kilometre loop in 22 minutes, 12 seconds, some three seconds ahead of Laval’s Marguerite Plante-Dube. Flynn became the first McGill runner to win the conference’s individual since Jessica Porfilio in 2012.
In team scoring, McGill finished second to Laval in both the men’s and women’s divisions.
