At Mt. Revelstoke National Park in Revelstoke on Thursday, Oct. 6, the Salmon Arm Secondary Cross-Country Running Team was once again a dominant force.

The team won the Senior Boys and Junior Boys categories and came second in the Senior Girls. There were only four Junior Girl runners so there were not enough for a team of five.

Emmy Sim and Thomas Hardy placed first overall in their respective races. For Grade 8 girls, Glynis Sim claimed the top time.

The male runners dominated the event with seven local runners placing in the top 10. The first five runners crossing the finish line were from SAS – a sea of blue singlets.

Many of the runners improved on their times on this course from last year.

The biggest accomplishment was Brody Burge who ran seven minutes faster than last year’s time.

In total there were 27 runners from Salmon Arm Secondary and another eight from Shuswap Middle School competing in the event.

The team races at Kal Park in Vernon today and then will be at home for both the North Zones and Okanagans.

Local racers who placed in the top three in the Revelstoke race were as follows:

• Senior boys – 1st Thomas Hardy, 2nd Cole Smith.

• Junior boys – 1st Jon Bakker, 2nd John Connor, 3rd John Grant.

• Junior girls – 1st Emmy Sim, 2nd Glynis Sim.

• Grade 8 girls – 1st Glynis Sim, 2nd Miya Kosowick, 3rd Jenny Petterson.
