Cross Country – Grades 1-7

 

We had a very strong finish to our cross country season.  After a strong performance at the St. Catherine’s Cross Country Meet on Oct. 1, we then concluded our season by competing in the CISVA Cross Country Meet on Wed. October 6 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby.  Out of 30 schools at the CISVA Meet, we (the St. Catherine’s SUNS) finished 7th overall!!! That is AWESOME and thank you to our runners that day for your amazing efforts.

 

Some very important highlights from the CISVA Meet…

  • There are six age aggregate categories, and we were the champions for those students born in 2013!  Congratulations to our Grade 3 runners who ran in the CISVA Meet.  It was our first age aggregate champion since 2010.
  • We improved by over 300 points in the overall standings compared to the last CISVA meet in 2019.
  • The 7th place finish represents the St. Catherine’s SUNS highest ranking at the CISVA Meet over the last 15 years (or since 2006).  Way to go SUNS!

 

Thank you to all staff and parents who helped in so many ways during the cross-country season.  There is no way we could do this without your support!
