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.
