Sarah F in 6th place led the way for the girl’s team with a strong 8:28 on the beautiful course at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre. Ella C 10th in 8:57 ran a great race placing second for the team. Our third scoring runner in her first Provincials was Alix T 15th in 9:37. Talia Rawlings closed impressively in a tough battle for 21st in 10:10 followed by Madison C who ran an incredible gutsy race to finish 22nd in 10:42.

Malcolm B in his trademark “Malcolm Style” ran an outstanding race and placed 4th in 8:13. Josh R in 9:40 and Owen C in 9:44 worked very well as a team and were rewarded with 16th and 17th place finishes. Lachlan S, one of our younger runners in his first Provincials placed 23rd in 10:47 securing the bronze for the Cheetahs. Our youngest competitors of the day Matthew F 28th in 11:26 and Bryce W 30th in 11:52 ran excellent races and should be very proud of themselves.

Way to go Cheetahs!
