17 members of the SJHS Cross Country team competed in Oromocto this weekend at the NBIAA regional qualifier. Greyhound runners continued to show their strength with 2 individual wins and one team win. In the end all the SJHS athletes/teams advanced to the provincial champs this Friday October 18th in Tracadie.

In total the squad brought home one team win by the Senior Girls plus 2 gold medals from the 3 races they competed in. The junior boys just missed beating FHS by 3 points.

Top finishers were:…Junior Boys - Brady Graves 1st Place....Senior Boys - Josh Shanks 1st Place....Senior Girls - Hannah Arsenault 4th place & Charly Bonga 6th place

This meet was excellent preparation for the NBIAA champs where the teams will face very tough competition from usual rivals FHS and strong teams from the north east region. The Hound XC team has had an outstanding season so congratulations to all of them. Good luck at Provincials!
