Ok. We exist for this very purpose. We need to be talking more about Ceili McCabe. She may be an enigma to Letsrun and the NCAA, but she should NOT be one in the country of her birth. Please, let’s not make the same mistake we did with Cam Levins all those years ago. WE should be the one’s telling the world about this athlete and where she came from. And she is shaping up to be the female Cam L. (Recall that Cam announced himself with a top 5 NCAA XC finish before taking indoors by storm!).
For starters, she is coached by S. Ontarian Sean Cleary at WVU. Sean has been uncanny for over a decade now in making his under-the-radar and often Canada-heavy women’s XC team a national D 1 qualifier and sometimes top 10 contender. That’s also finishers on my end, unfortunately.
What would be truly heroic is if one of our BC members were to get a very short interview with her for posting here-- if for no other reason than that it would scoop the wretched Chris Kelsall, whom you KNOW will be circling!
