The cross country team from Mark Isfeld Secondary made its mark Saturday at the B.C. High School Cross Country Championships in Nanaimo, and at the recent Vancouver Island High School Cross Country Championships in Victoria.

Iris Tinmouth capped off a win at Islands with a strong second place at the B.C. Championships in the junior girls category, racing within 18 seconds of the top finisher.

The Isfeld junior girls team, comprised of Tinmouth, Jenna and Kirsten Cook, Alex Vinzenz and Keira Trevor brought home the trophy for top team at their level at Islands. They took ninth top team in the province at BCXCC.

Two other Isfeld teams, junior and senior boys, narrowly missed qualifying for the provincial meet, coming just one placing out of the qualifying placing permitted to move on.

The only two senior girls on the team, Emma Wong and Frederica Blouin-Comeau, both placed in the top 10 at Islands and turned in a strong performance at provincials, demonstrating across-the-board strength as a team.

Congratulations to all teams and competitors for a great season of running.
