Under sunny skies and a temperature of 11 Celsius, the 45th Annual High School X- Country Championships got under way Nov. 1 in Victoria, BC.

In separate races, 235 Senior boys and 225 Senior girls  took to the trails to find out who would be the top male and female runner in the Province. The boys had to run a grueling 6.4 km race ( 4 miles).

Nathan Tadesse from North Surrey Secondary crossed the line first in a time of 20 minutes 34 seconds which equals a 5.06 mile pace.  In the girls race, Hannah Bennison from Vernon Secondary covered the 4.4 km race (2.75 miles) in 14 minutes 59 second to win the girls championship. 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.

The top female went to Olivia Baptiste , grade 10,  from Correlieu Secondary  as she finished 14th  in a time of 16 minutes 16 seconds.

Julia Babicz from College Heights Secondary and Kyra Teetzen from Correlieu Secondary came 2nd and 3rd from the North Central Zones.
