She ran a 5 minute and 30 second mile pace.

From the North Central Zone 48 runners headed down to Victoria and took part in the Championship.

In the boys event, Alexander Nemethy from Nechako Valley was running his 5th and last championship.

He placed 12th overall in a time of 21 minutes 40 seconds and was the top male from North Central Zone. Brandon Balbirine from 100 Mile House and Isaac Goodrich form College Heights  were 2nd  and 3rd respectively.
