Royals Excel at BC High School Cross Country Championships

A big congratulations goes out to our Valley Royals Cross Country runners. Yesterday (Nov. 6) at Jericho Beach Park in Vancouver, we wrapped up our season with some of the strongest performances of the year.
In the Junior Boys Division, Mark Molina finished 11th, Sam May finished 15th, and Arata Nakanishi finished 31st in a field of 265 runners. In the Junior girls, Adrianna Buitelaar finished 21st in a field of 240, which can only be described as a fantastic result for this grade 8 competitor. Zoe Unger did not have her best race and still finished a very strong 39th!
In the senior division William Burke and Halle May finished strongly with 46th and 51 place finishes respectively. As many of our competitors are not at the top of their age division, we should be ready to start challenging for medal positions at the provincial level over the next 12 months.
A big thank you goes out to all the people who supported our Cross Country runners through the fall.  Well done Royals.
Great athletes are the result of great programs and our board members, parents, volunteers and coaches have all done a fantastic job this fall in developing our athletes. – Coach Scott

Royals Shine at Eastern Valley Championship

Our Royals cross country runners had a great showing at the very well attended Eastern Fraser Valley Championship yesterday on our home course. Riley Simonds finished 30 seconds ahead of the field to win the grade 8 boys division, and we had a landslide in the Junior Men’s race with Mark Molina finishing 1st, Sam May 3rd, Arata Nakanishi 4th, Arie Wassenaar 7th, Will Van Schagen 8th, and Tristian Steiger 13th. William Burke rounded out the day on the men’s side by winning the Senior Boys Championship. On the women’s side Zoe Unger and Adrianna Buitelaar had fantastic races in the Junior Women’s division, finishing 2nd and 4th in a field of 60 runners. Adrianna, who is grade 8, decided to run in the Junior race and was successful in her bid to grab a qualifying spot to the Provincial Championships November 6th. Ally Hutchison had a strong race in the Senior Women’s division to finish in the 8th position.

A big congratulations to all our runners, most of whom are moving on to the BC High School Championships in a week and a half’s time. – Coach Scott
