Wednesday, October 19 was cross country conference championship day for the schools in WOSSAA. These championships consisted of TVRA Central (London), TVRA Tri County (Oxford, Elgin and Middlesex county schools) and Huron-Perth. In all, these conferences combine for the more than 60 high schools represented at WOSSAA. Each conference meet determines the qualifiers for WOSSAA cross country – the final step on the way to OFSAA.
