Mountain’s Cross Country team had a strong showing at the Fraser Valley Championships last week at Crescent Park. In heavy rain and wind, athletes competed against a field of roughly 200 runners per division. Congratulations to all these athletes for showing such grit!!
Junior Boys Wade Alton, Caleb Federau and Lance Pablo all finished strong in under 20:00.
Cayle Geddes and Megan Morton-Burkmar ran in the Jr Girls and Laurie Yeh and Bonnie Yoo competed in the Sr. Girls division.
The Sr. Boys once again are bringing home the banner for 1st place team score! The team consists of Zach Wyatt, Tate Wyatt, Jordan Schmidt, Felix Allen, Danny Lee, Brydon Pires, Kenneth Xing, John Wang and Ethan Pavlic.
On Monday, October 23rd, the teams competed again in the District Championship. Fortunately, the weather was much better! Again, our senior boys took home the banner winning first place in the District. Looks like it’s going to be a great year for our runners.
The team will now compete in the BC Provincial Championships at Jericho Park Nov. 4th.
Congratulations to the Sr. Boys and the rest of the cross country team and a huge thanks to Mrs. McKinnon for coaching them.
