A small group of committed runners from Stettler Middle School met twice a week during the months of September and October to train for three events this year.
Seven athletes from SMS attended Wetaskiwin’s Peace Hills Meet on Sept. 22 and brought home two school awards.
On Oct. 2, 78 students ran with fellow Clearview students in Castor at the annual CARA cross-country meet. Many local students placed in the top 10.
Forty runners travelled to Sylvan Lake on Oct. 11, braved the snow and wind, and competed in the CWAJHAA meet.
There some impressive finishes in that meet, as well. It was a fantastic start to the Stettler Middle School athletic calendar for this school year.
Among the top SMS results at the CWAJHAA meet were top-10 finishers Reece Frank (second in Grade 6 girls) and Krysta Froese (sixth in Grade 7 girls), along with others close behind in 11th and 16th positions.
