Moncton – October 17, 2014
The SJHS Greyhounds faced off against tough competition in wet rainy weather at the NBIAA cross country running championships Moncton.
Brady Graves ran a strong race to win the gold in Sr. Boys in a time of 16.33.9 for 5km, leading his team to a second place finish behind FHS. Brady had the toughest race of his season facing a challenge from Daniel Johnston of Ecole L’Odyssee. In the end Brady won by a 5 second margin going undefeated for the entire season. He was followed by team mates Tyler Adams and Felipe Lamprea 5th and 6th who ran outstandingly, then veteran runner Dallas Casey running his best race of the season to place 11th and Alex Niles who rounded out the team in 38th.
In the junior boy’s race, our team leader for the entire season, Adam Lambert raced to a strong 7th place finish and led his team to a very close second place finish behind Ecole Aux Quatre Vents. He was followed closely by Dennis Emerson in 12th then Ryan Evans, Will Roderick, and Sean Furey completed the scorers placing 28th, 36th and 38th. Padie Currie and Colin Niles rounded out the squad as our 6th and 7th runners. The team ran very strongly in what was their best race of the season and this group of young runner’s shows great potential for future years.
The Senior Girls SJHS team had a challenging day facing off against hosts Bernice McNaughton who in the end went on to become the 2014 Provincial Champions. The Hounds were led by veterans Charly Bonga in 10th, Laura Bonga in 12th and then closely followed by rookie Kathleen O’Keefe in 15th. Victoria Leblanc in 23rd was our 4th runners and unfortunately Emilee Hoellwarth had to drop our due to injury.
This marks the end of the cross country season for the SJHS Greyhounds but with only 2 graduating runners bodes well for next year’s team.

On September 28th, SJHS's Club H.O.P.E participated in its first event of the year: the annual South-end clean up. Despite the early hours there was an amazing turnout with 30 people. Warm thank you's from strangers were passed on and our efforts were greatly appreciated and much needed. It was a fantastic start to a great year for Club H.O.P.E, with more events and opportunities for us to help our community, we hope to see the same enthusiasm and dedication to volunteering.
