The JDs had another great showing with lots of strong performances! – Coach Parm
Great running from all our JDs, and well done to our high school open division runners. Great showing from so many of our up and coming athletes. – Coach Scott
Our Valley Royals Cross Country runners competed in our home meet this past weekend at Clearbrook Park in Abbotsford. In the JD division, Avery Westbrook, Jackson Camozzi, Landon Gleeson, Alexia Smith, Adrianna Buitelaar, and Damian Sutton all won their respective divisions. Nevaya Neufeld placed 2nd in the 10 year old girls race and Josiah Boulter finished 3rd in the 11 year old boys race. We also saw strong performances from Ellie Heath, Damien Brown, Addison Westbrook, and Meera Hadani. Many more of our club athletes were also right in there for the medals.
In the High School Open Division we showed very well with Halle May, Zoe Unger, and Ally Hutchison placing 3rd , 4th, and 9th respectively on the women’s side, and Mark Molina, Sam May, Arata Nakanishi, William Burke, and Riley Simmonds, placing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 9thin the men’s division.
A notable mention goes out to Brett Kehler who ran a strong race in the very competitive University Open division and to all of our developing athletes who are working hard and improving daily. Well done.
The athletes look to prepare for their final meet of the season on October 23rd in Victoria.
I would like to finish by giving a big shout out to all of our great volunteers who made this event such a success. -Coach Scott
We had many compliments from all the universities, clubs, and high schools that attended, and it would not have happened without all of you. Thanks for all your fine efforts.
