Over the past month, three NB runners in Ryan Cassidy, Barry Britt and Geneviève Lalonde have excelled on the national stage and ASEA would like to recognize them for their outstanding achievements. Ryan`s first place finish at the Canadian Juniors Cross Country Championships was the first time in the history of national cross country running that a New Brunswicker would win a national title. At the same event, Barry Britt came in 2nd place in the Senior category equaling Joël Bourgeois achivements that of a few other NB runners best all time results in the senior group. http://timestranscript.canadaeast.com/sports/article/1459409   Earlier in the month, Geneviève Lalonde running for Guelph University, won the CIS Cross Country championship, also a feat that was not accomplished by a New Brunswicker since Joël Bourgeois in 1994.

Representing ASEA at the Canadian Junior Cross Country Championships were also Lee Wesselius who was 22nd, Dylan Hébert 102nd, and  Clark Wesselius 123rd. Considering the younger ages of these ASEA runners their performances bode very well for the future. Congratulations gentlemen.  

Nov 29, 2011 - Peter Stuart recognized with Volunteer Life Time Award by Sport NB

ASEA wishes to congratulate its head coach Peter Stuart for his 33 years of volunteering in helping athletes develop in and through the sport of Athletics as well as physical education. "Peter has been the leader in the region of South Eastern New Brunswick in terms of helping the sport grow and in so doing has probably impacted thousands of youth over his many years of involvement" states ASEA's board chair Gisèle Lévesque. "It was great to see that Sports NB  recognized Peter's work and contribution with the 2011 recipient of the Volunteer Life Time Award at their annual gala award and before his family all of whom have participated in his efforts. Furthermore with retirement from his teaching profession in the near future, it is equally exciting to hear Peter say that this was merely the first 33 year and that he was now looking forward to even more devotion over the next 33!". As a result of Peter and the many other volunteers working alongside him, ASEA boasts one of the very best coaching staff and athletic organization in the country and we all look forward to helping athletes develop in the sport of athletics."

Moncton and its Hub City Track and Field Classic will be the host to a National Track League event in July, 2012. On hand for the announcement Friday were athletes Madison Dayton and Sidney Donaldson, meet director Peter Stuart and CEO of Athletics Canada Rob Guy.

They may even record the best time of their lives on the ultra-fast running surface at Stade Moncton Stadium.

Stuart, the long-time coach of Athlétisme Sud-Est/South-East Athletics, is the meet director for the Hub City Track and Field Classic, scheduled for July 5 at the stadium.

The Classic has been added to the National Track League schedule for the 2012 season. Moncton will be the fourth stop on the schedule, which also includes stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Halifax, Vancouver and Victoria.

The league is an international point-based series which sees athletes compete for prize money and overall championships.

Athletics Canada chief executive offer Rob Guy said at a news conference at city hall yesterday that Canada will send 30-35 track and field athletes to London and many of them will probably compete in Moncton.

"You're going to see many of the big names from Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and South America here in Moncton," Guy said.

"It's only a month or so before the London Games and many of the athletes won't want to be in Europe that early, but they will be looking for competitive situations," he said. "That's what we'll be offering in Moncton."

Stuart said local organizers will be offering more than the intense competition.

"Last year, we hosted the first Hub City Classic and the athletes loved it," Stuart said. "Our volunteers were there to help from the moment they arrived and I had a number of top athletes tell me that our meet was second to none. The hospitality and organization was second to none."

Last year's Classic attracted 500 spectators and Stuart is confident 2,000 fans can be drawn to the stadium for the event.

"The fans who showed up last year had a great time and the word-of-mouth was positive," Stuart said. "We offer two-and-a-half hours of constant action. It's a great time and people are going to see world-class athletes in our backyard."

Middle and elementary school students will be invited to practice with Olympic athletes on the day before the meet.

On the afternoon of the Classic, top high school competitors from all over the Maritimes will have their own meet at the stadium. The Classic will run on the evening of July 5.

The event will feature National Track League events, two para-athlete events and four open competitions.

Moncton will also host the Canadian senior track and field championships in 2013 and 2014.
