REDS TOP RAIDERS
Sarah O’Rourke netted 21 points but it wasn’t enough as the Holy Cross Raiders fell 52-41 to the Denis Morris Reds in NCAA senior girls basketball action.
“For most of the game, the score was within four to six points,” Holy Cross coach Erin Gauthier said. “It was a good battle right up to the end. We struggled to control the defensive boards.”
Vanessa D’Epiro and Britney Smith added six points each for the Raiders while Jordyn Britton hooped 14 for the Reds.
St. Catharines resident Ron Lapensee is hoping to crush a banana at the Niagara Falls International Marathon in Niagara Falls.
Lapensee will attempt to run the fastest half marathon dressed as a fruit. Dressed in a grape costume, he will attempt to peel seconds off the record set by Thomas Priest from the United Kingdom. Priest ran a half marathon dressed as a banana in 1:20:37.
“I’m excited a Guinness World Record is even within reach for me, even if it requires a silly costume,” Lapensee said. “I think dressing up as grapes for the race gives my record attempt a distinct Niagara flavour.”
