Under snowy Prince George skies, the Salmon Arm Secondary Cross-Country Running teams made their way over slushy and slippery sections at Provincials on Nov. 3, joining 251 females and 264 males.
Both Emmy and Glynis Sim placed in the top 25: Glynis ninth and Emmy 19th in tough competition. Rachel May was the next local runner to come across the line in 79th. After that it was Lisa Petterson, Elena Bruns, Stella Mozin, Sam Bergman and Katie Harding.
In the boys’ race Grade 12 student James Whitehead and Grade 9 student Andrew Nash finished neck and neck, the first local boys to finish. Following them was Lukas Allen, Seth van Varsveld, Nelson Kleer and Derrick Wrench.
The girls’ team finished 14th out of 29 teams and the very young boys team, (four Grade 9s) finished 27th out of 29 teams.
“All the runners ran their hardest and are to be commended on doing a wonderful job in representing Salmon Arm,” said coach Tricia Martin.
