It seemed like it was only yesterday I was sitting at a kitchen table with Sevanne and Madeleine Ghazarian, talking to a pair of Grade 10 athletes that had made a huge impact on the WCSSAA/District 8 cross-country circuit.
Fast forward to Thursday at Bechtel Park and the Ghazarian twins continue to dazzle, finishing first and second in the senior girls' 5,000-metre race at the CWOSSA cross-country championship.
The Ghazarians seemed more than happy to talk with me at the conclusion of their race and I reminded them of the interview two years ago at their Cambridge home.
Almost at the same time, they responded by saying they were talking about that day earlier this week and were also blown away by how quickly their high school days have passed.
The girls are being recruited by American and Canadians universities and I wasn't surprised to hear they both thought it would be nice to attend the same school.
Sevanne, of course, currently goes to St. Benedict and Madeleine goes to Preston. They went their separate ways in Grade 9 so they could be viewed as individuals, their mother Veronica explained to me two years ago, and not "one of the twins."
They expect to make a university decision in short order but Madeleine suggested "it might be nice to study and run together."
Sevanne said it would be nice to have "a familiar face so far away from home."
Sounds like one university coach is going to have a pair of top-notch athletes on his team next fall.
Best of luck to the Bluevale Knights and Resurrection Phoenix at next week's OFSAA field hockey championship in Kitchener and Waterloo.
The teams reached OFSAA by reaching the gold-medal game of the CWOSSA tournament, with Bluevale scoring a 2-1 win over Resurrection in the final.
There wasn't a tear to be found after the game as players on both teams realized the major accomplishment was reaching the final and nabbing an OFSAA berth.
The same couldn't be said for Cameron Heights players that lost a heartbreaking defeat to Resurrection in semifinal play. The Gaels pushed the two-time defending OFSAA champions to flicks before coming up short and it was an emotional scene when all was said and done.
They didn't make it to OFSAA but Gaels have no reason to hang their heads.
No one game them much of a chance against Rez and they gave them all they can handle.
