Similkameen Elementary Secondary School sent three runners to the Cross Country Provincials in Prince George on the weekend.
The three students performed well, in spite of a soggy, snowy, slushy and muddy route. Kassidy Todd placed 46 out of 251 and was the third Okanagan girl.
Cael Warner placed 50 out of 249 and was the third Okanagan male to complete the run.
Noah Beglaw placed 125 – a great showing for a 14 year old.
All three felt it was a great experience overall.
