The JDs performed very well at the Festival of Cross Country meet this past weekend (Oct 2). For many athletes, this was their first meet of the season. Kaiden Gleeson placed 2nd in the 2009 boys race, and Averie Westbrook finished in 3rd for the 2012 girls. Jackson Comozzi, Owen Westergaard, Avery Shulba, Emmit Redekop, and Josiah Boulter also had strong races and finished in ribbon contention for their respective categories.
Thank you, JDs, for representing the club so well in this competitive field!-Coach Parmvir
The senior runners also represented us proudly this past weekend. Riley Simmonds placed 1st in the U14 division, moving him into the lead for the Lower Mainland cross country series. Adrianna Buitelaar placed 2nd in the U14 division, and Damian Sutton Narrowly missed the medals with a 4th place finish in his division. Mark Molina, Samuel May, Arata Nakanishi, Arie Wassenaar, and Will Vanschagen all ran extremely well in a very competitive U16 boys division, and many of our athletes are continuing to make large leaps forwards every time out.
A big congratulations to all our runners who competed. Well done.
