Carihi girls make the grade

This is only the third time in Carihi history that the girls have achieved this

The Carihi Girls team qualified for the Provincial Championship with a courageous fourth place finish today.

This is only the third time in Carihi history that the girls have achieved this. A delighted group of runners are off to Prince George late next week. The Girls made it by eight points which in Cross Country terms means it was very very close. Top runner was Josie Simpson who came 15th on the Island. Simpson was ably supported by her team mates Karlyn Healy, Talish Lindenbach, Cassidy Hinsburger, Claire Pomeroy, Megan Nuttall and Janna Manners.

The Tyee boys also ran with great determination and achieved a school best ever result with a 5th place finish missing out by one position for a first ever Provincial Championship berth. Top finishers were Brendan Hoff who came 10th and Jason Fawkes who finished 20th. Strong runs also came from Karson Kroetsch, Tyrell Barley, Kevin Shelswell, Conner Fairweather and Paul Jackman.
