The cross-country team participated in the Zone meet to qualify for the Provincial Championships on Tuesday, October 17th at Jericho. It was a very successful meet for the student-athletes! Charlie B. ran a very strong race in the junior boys category as did Simon T., and both Mr. Hunt and Ms. Ayotte were very impressed with their races.
The provincials take place on Saturday, November 4th at Jericho and Fraser Academy will be sending five athletes! This is a HUGE accomplishment for a small school. In the junior boys category, Yabi D., Frank C. and Alexis D. all placed high enough to earn a trip to Jericho on November 4th. Samantha S. was very impressive in a strong senior girls category and will also be going to the Championships. In the senior boys category, Harrison A. blew away any competition and qualified first in the senior boys category by a long shot, despite a bit of competition from a strong VC runner during the race.
Congratulations to all participants and qualifiers! Special thanks go out to Mr. Hunt and Ms. Ayotte for their committed efforts in preparing our athletes for the cross country season.
