BC Summer Games – Distance Group Excels

Our Valley Royals U16 members of the distance group had the time of their lives this past week at the British Columbia Summer Games, in Prince George.  Representing the East Fraser Valley, our crew rose to the occasion yet again and represented themselves and their hometowns with pride. From a fantastic opening ceremony with eight thousand people in the arena, to multiple scheduled events and community activities planned for the approximately 4000 athletes and team staff, the city of Prince George outdid themselves and were wonderful hosts to our young athletes – giving them a time they will never forget. Running against the best competition our province had to offer, our Valley Royals distance group had the best showing of any club in British Columbia.

So very, very, well done to you all and I am so proud of each and every one of you.  – Coach Scott
