Submitted by G.M.Dawson–On the weekend of November 7 and 8, South Surrey hosted the High School Cross Country Championships (bcsscctfa.bc.ca). Students from all over B.C. gathered at beautiful Crescent Park to compete. Representing Haida Gwaii were two athletes from GM Dawson. They had trained since September and had competed in three local meets. Best laid plans to attend the Zones meet in Smithers were thwarted by stormy weather delaying the ferry. So officials heard our appeal and granted us spots at the championships.First up was Sarah Good, who completed her 4.4 kilometre event in 26:35.71. Right after her race it was the boys turn and Skyler Boulton-Brown ran his 6.4 kilometre event in 30:20.76. There were 270 runners in the girls event and 280 runners in the boys event! All the runners were hampered by wet, drizzly, conditions which made the grass slick, the hills treacherous and mud throughout the course. All in all it was a good experience for our athletes and a nice finish to the cross country season.
