Twenty-four girls and 16 boys from grades 6 to 8 took part in the CARA meet at Theresetta Catholic School on Thursday, Oct. 9, with several ranking in the top 10 for their respective categories.

Vice-principal Jeff Lee said that although the number of students involved has declined from previous years, he was pleased with the results.
