Coach Warren Aspenes said the team showed a strong performance and achieved a well deserved second place.

“The students finished second in the overall school team event as a result of some very strong performances,” said Aspenes.

“Many of the athletes we competed against were provincial medalists from last year so the level of competition was strong.”

“ Some of our students will be running this week in New Norway and next week at the Zone Meet in Wetaskiwin” said Aspenes.
