Shea is known as a leader for the team, helping throughout the season in various roles.
Shea is enrolled in the human services program.
Ryan Francom, in his first year as a Hurricanes’ student-athlete, had a solid fourth-place finish at the men’s individual cross-country running meet on Saturday in Halifax. He led the Hurricanes to a second-place team finish in the competition.
Francom is from Summerside, and is in the Holland College commercial diving program.
The Holland Hurricanes will host the ACAA cross-country running championships at the Mark Arendz Provincial Ski Park at Brookvale on Oct. 27.
