On October 5th, our Cross-Country team gathered at Malden Park for the City meet with other schools for the first race. Grades 3 and 4 ran 1.5 kilometres, grades 5 and 6 ran 2 kilometres and grades 7 and 8 ran 3 kilometres.
Thursday the 11th was the first districts meet. Those who ran and achieved first 20 in their race moved on to districts. Districts were held at Lakeside Park in Kingsville. "It was windy and cool" said 5thgrade teacher and coach Mme Sovran.
Runners were placed into six categories: Grades 3-4: Novice (girls and boys), Grades 5-6: Junior (girls and boys), Grades 7-8: Intermediate (girls and boys). The runners ran the same distanceas the city meet.
Congratulations to the entire team and our coaches Mme Sovran and M. Nichols for a fantastic season!
