The Salmon Arm Secondary cross-country team excelled in their latest meet at Kal Park in Vernon last week.

The Salmon Arm Secondary cross-country team excelled in their latest meet at Kal Park in Vernon last week.

Due to eight course marshals not showing up, a majority of the 37 female racers took a wrong turn and ended up doing a shorter version of the course. Unfortunately, because of the incident, no awards were given out, but Hannah Bennison was declared the winner.

On the boys’ side of the event, both the seniors and juniors ran their way to first-place team finishes.

The Sr. boys narrowly defeated their toughest rival, Seaton, by two points.

Top results for the boys were James Hardy finishing second overall, Kael Amdam sixth in the senior age category and  Nelson Kleer was eighth in the seniors race.

The top Jr. boys were Tyson Stewart in fifth, Ben van Bergeyk eighth, with Sunny Pickup rounding out the top 10.  In total there were 46 male runners.

Shuswap Middle School Grade 8 male runner Steven Moore came in first place amongst all Grade 8s, while Calvin Hepburn came in second.

The SAS cross country team will prepare to host the North Zones this afternoon at 4 p.m.

On Tuesday, Oct. 27 at Larch Hills they will host the Valleys with an 11:30 a.m. start for the girls. Provincials will take place on Nov. 7 at Jericho Beach.
