Vanderhoof cross-country runner goes national

Vanderhoof cross-country runner goes national, representing B.C.

With five other university runners in the junior team

A Nechako Valley Secondary graduate now represents B.C. in the national cross-country stage.

Alexander Nemethy, from NVSS’s 2015 graduate class, took part in the Canadian Cross-country Championships in Kingston, Ontario on Nov. 28.

Running eight kilometres under cloudy skies with a temperature of 4 degrees Celsius, Nemethy was selected as one of six university runners to take part on the B.C. junior team.

He currently studies engineering at the University of Victoria and runs for the university’s varsity cross-country team, which was victorious at the Canadian Inter-university Sport Cross-Country Championships this past November, beating out University of Guelph who had won nine years in a row.

Defeated by Ontario, B.C.’s junior team placed second among 116 university runners in the hilly race.
