SAS, SMS runners provincials bound

A record number of runners from Salmon Arm Secondary and Shuswap Middle School have qualified for the cross-country provincials

A record number of runners from Salmon Arm Secondary and Shuswap Middle School have qualified for the cross-country provincials at Jericho Beach this Saturday.

Thanks to strong team showings at the Okanagan Valley Championships at Larch Hills last Tuesday, 24 runners will represent Salmon Arm in the provincial championships.

Both the senior boys and girls and junior girls teams placed first in their respective divisions and were crowned Okanagan Champions.

Narrowly missing out on a provincial berth by one position were the junior boys who finished in third position. Two of the junior boys suffered injuries, which hampered their chances to qualify for the Vancouver event.

The top senior girls runner for Salmon Arm Secondary was Glynis Sim, while Chantel Jeffrey was the fastest junior runner for SAS.

Finishing seventh place overall in the junior division was Teagan Findlay, who was the top girls runner from SMS. Once again Kael Amdam set the benchmark for the senior boys, while Sunny Pickup was the top junior runner from SAS.

Running for SMS, Stephen Moore was the fastest junior boys runner from Salmon Arm.

Approximately 198 athletes from Merritt to Revelstoke to Penticton took part in the regional final at Larch Hills.
