Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

Not even running with a taped ankle could stop stop Lynnea Lobert from coming in first place in the Girl's 3k Run at today's NOSSA cross country meet at Hiawatha.

Lobert, who injured her ankle yesterday while playing volleyball said that she loves to run.

She said "I've been running my whole life. My dad has encouraged me to run, and in fact my whole family enjoys running".

Lobert said the only thing you can do is get out there and "run as fast as you can".

She was not the only SJD student to grab a first place finish today.

Rhiannon Johns took top spot in the Senior Girls 5k run with a 30 second lead over Manitoulin's Emma Tallman.

Nora-Beth Saunders took third spot in the race and all three girls will be competing at next weeks OFFSA meet in Niagra Falls.
