Kucheravy, a 20-year-old accounting major, took the long jump with a leap of 5.57 metres. The 5-foot-7 junior also ran the second leg of the winning 4×200 relay, which crossed the finish line in one minute, 46.31 seconds. In addition, she finished third in the shot put with a throw od 10.79m.
Joining Kucheravy on the winning relay was leadoff sprinter Ellen Parker, a junior from Halifax, along with Montrealer Annabelle Williams and Helena Reinfels, a junior from Puslinch, Ont., who ran the anchor leg.
On the men’s side, McGill claimed four events, led by Lenny Dion, a senior linebacker with the Redmen football team, who won the shot put with a toss of 12.83m. Other individual gold medalists were middle distance runners Steven Murray (300m, 35.22) of Burlington, Ont., and sophomore Cody Rountree (600m, 1:25.01) of St. Bruno, Que.
