Powerhouse team rules

It was a clean sweep for Salmon Arm Secondary’s powerhouse cross-country running team

Fleet feet: Thomas Hardy of Salmon Arm Secondary’s cross-country running team races down the hill to finish first in the senior boys division in a North Zone run at Kalamalka Provincial Park Wednesday.

It was a clean sweep for Salmon Arm Secondary’s powerhouse cross-country running team with senior girls and senior and junior boys all taking home top finishes from last Wednesday’s race at Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park in Vernon.

Three teams competed in the event with the senior girls claiming the top 10 finishes (junior girls ran as seniors for this race), senior boys taking top six and junior boys top five.

Emmy Sim ran her way to victory with a first overall as well as first in the senior girls with teammates Stella Mozin placing second and Emma Shaule third.

Following suit was Thomas Hardy, who achieved first overall and first in the senior boys with teammates Kyle Flatman placing second and James Whitehead third.

For the junior boys it would be John Grant making strides, winning first, with teammate Don Robinson alongside, placing second.

SAS is set to host the North Zones at Larch Hills today, Wednesday, Oct. 19, followed by the Okanagans on Oct. 25, also at Larch Hills. The top three senior teams and 20 individuals will go to the provincials.

In last week’s article on the Oct. 6 cross-country race in Revelstoke, some 2010 results found their way into the paper. The actual results 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.
