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.

“Our junior girls still need work and with three more weeks left until zones we can still improve a lot,” he said, adding that a couple of athletes are injured.

“We can pull it together, I know it,” he said.
