WOSSAA Cross Country

The Northwestern Cross Country team travelled to St.Anne’s in Clinton to compete in the WOSSAA championship.  Our lone midget girl, Kelly Guy, ran a strong race and finished 39th out of 85.  Dirk Sybersma ran an impressive race finishing 26th out of 92.  Our junior boys pair, Alberto Galceran and Tyler Guy came in 71st and 82nd out of 99 runners.  The senior boys race was one to watch this year.  AJ Schmidt ran a fast race finishing 22nd with Michael Vandewiel coming in close behind in 30th place.  These two boys are running 6 kilometres in just over 20 minutes.  That’s a pace of less than 3 and a half minutes per kilometre.  Maria Giannakopoulos sprinted to the finish to place 83rd and Shayla Brooks, in the final race of her high school career ran an incredible race finishing 43rd out of 113 runners.  Mrs.Welsh is so proud of the hard work and dedication this year!  We had a very impressive season.
