There are three runners missing from the medals picture.
Great effort, enthusiasm, concentration, determination, success and FUN! Weâre proud of all of our ETSB runners!

The Bishopâs Gaiters football team now officially finds itself in a position they were hoping to avoid all season long, needing to defeat the powerhouse Laval Rouge & Or in order to have a chance at making a playoff run this year.
Laval has been seemingly untouchable throughout the year, other than a hiccup last weekend in which they lost to Montreal. The Rouge & Or have been virtually steamrolling through other RSEQ teams since the season began in September.
Legends are born in October. Thatâs the axiom that has been told to generations of baseball fans. While itâs important that you get it done over 163 games for six months during the summer, what really matters is the handful you play over the span of a couple of weeks.
Thatâs the belief system that seems to permeate the leagueâs front offices, often to the detriment of a teamâs bankroll.

Lunchtime diners at Louis Luncheonette restaurants in Sherbrooke yesterday may have noticed a few extra, oddly dressed staff members behind the counter.

Small towns, big moons and bilingualism all hold a special place in Jill Barberâs music career, which is why itâs all too appropriate that the Canadian singer-song writer will be visiting the Centennial Theatre in Lennoxville tonight for the third time in three years.
Currently touring her latest album Mischievous Moon, released last April, Barber has already enjoyed her fair share of big city shows, including the Montreal Jazz Festival. Still, she said thereâs just something about the small towns that helps an artist grow.
The anglicization of the Eastern Townships, and the rest of Quebec, is forcing French workers to communicate in their second language according to the Mouvement QuĂ©bec franĂ§ais (MQF).
âThe Anglicization threatens the right of employees to work in French in lâEstrie, which is replaced more and more frequently for English with Montreal businesses,â said the MQFâs president Mario Beaulieu in a statement released on Thursday.
Workers at the Estrie SPA are shocked and angry after a litter of puppies were found stuffed into a plastic container and dumped less than a kilometre away from their facilities Wednesday morning.
An animal health technician discovered the 15 puppies on the edge of a ravine on Hyatt Street, which runs behind the centre, when she was driving by.
Although left without food and water, SPA spokesperson Cathy Bergeron does not believe the puppies were left alone for very long. Employees had passed by the same spot and noticed nothing earlier in the day.
