They ran fast

The fastest students tied up their runners and blasted off of the start line at the Collettville Cross Country Challenge.

The fastest students tied up their runners, put aside their jitters and blasted off of the start line at the Collettville Cross Country Challenge.  Each year, those who trained during their lunch hours for the annual competition head to Merritt to compete.  It is a challenge that many of the students look forward to with a mixture of trepidation and exhilaration.

“This was the biggest group of runners that the two schools have had in some years and their enthusiasm was great,” stated running coach and principal Barry Clarke “The weather was perfect for the run and the two hilly courses set out were well-suited to the age groups involved.  Our students placed well and better than that – all finished the course without injury.”
