Cross-country race held in the District

Over 12 schools from across the region competed in the event

Over a hundred runners took part in the X-Country Race on Saturday at the Nechako Valley Sporting Association grounds.

Students from across twelve schools took part in the race and Brian Nemethy, NVSS X-Country head coach said the home team did really well.

NVSS Jr. boys placed first and the junior girls were second by a few points, he said.

Nolan McCleary was the top senior runner and Tanton Mueller was the junior boys top runner.

“Overall the team is strong,” Nemethy said.
