Maggie Smith Leaves University Athletes in the Dust
It took a high schooler to let the university girls know who’s boss! Congratulations yet again to running phenom Maggie Smith who not only broke two more provincial records, but did it against a field of experienced university runners.
As a member of the Halifast Athletics running team that included athletes from Dalhousie University, Maggie participated in this past weekend’s McGill Team Challenge in Montreal. She was victorious in the 1,000m race with an unbelievable time of 2:46, setting a new meet record and a U20 provincial record in Nova Scotia. But her record-breaking performance didn’t stop there; Maggie bested her university-level competition again in the 1,500m race and ran away with another U20 Nova Scotia record in the process. The trophy case is just not big enough for this dynamo! Congratulations Maggie, we’re so proud of you.
