The University of Guelph Gryphons Cross-country teams traveled to State College, PA, this past week-end to compete in the Penn State National Invitational. Over 40 US D1 NCAA schools were represented. Conditions were good with clear skies, a moderate 15C temperature, and light winds.

The Gryphon women finished 15th overall, with most of the team completing the 6km course in personal best times

The Guelph Gryphons came out flying against a strong Brock Badger squad. Aleisha Lusk (Mitchell, ON) put up the shut out for Guelph, stopping all 37 Brock shots. The “Brat Pack” line of Nicole Latreille (Nepean, ON), Arden Sullivan (London, ON) and Elaine Dumas (Waterloo, ON) finally broke out of their scoring slump and put up all three goals and a total of eight points. Latreille scored all three Gryphon goals for her first career OUA hat-trick. Sullivan added three helpers and Dumas had two. The other assist went to Bianca Kitts (Nepean, ON). Guelph’s goals were earned three different ways, even strength, one on the power play, and one shorthanded (and also into an empty net). Guelph now stands at 2-1 on the season. Guelph had 32 shots on goal, killed off 4 shorthanded situations and was 1 for 3 on the powerplay.

Up next for the Gryphons is a tough weekend, with two road games against York and Toronto. Guelph plays York on Saturday October 21 at the Ice Gardens on the campus of York University, and then travel to Toronto to play the Varsity Blues on Sunday October 22 at Varsity Arena. Game times are 6:00 PM and 5:00 PM respectively.
