Competing in slippery and cold conditions, the Pen High Lakers cross-country team capped the season with positive results across the finish line during the B.C. high school provincials in Aldergrove Nov. 2.

Lakers coach Geoff Waterman said the girls team performed well as they earned a 16th-place finish in a field of 26 teams.

“We were led by Meg Cumming and Emily Clarke, who finished 49th and 81st, respectively,” said Waterman.

On the boys side, Josh Holland ran in the inaugural junior boys race and placed 37th, 30 seconds out of 20th place.

“Our senior boys Cael Warner and Luke Grandbois placed an amazing 15th and 51st place, respectively,” said Waterman. “Cael was the standout of the weekend and season, he has worked very hard and is looking to attend university next year and compete in cross country.”

The Lakers sent seven girls and three boys to the provincial championship.
