LVR cross country teams compete at provincials

The senior boys placed 11th and the junior girls finished 18th in Vancouver.

This past weekend the L.V. Rogers cross country teams competed in Vancouver at the high school cross country championships. In the senior boys event, 26 of the top school teams in the province from across all the divisions were represented. LVR’s team finished 11th.

Keiran Marchand was the school’s top finisher followed by Micah May, Darian Johnson, Tibo Kölmel and Malte Liedtke. Coach Alex Ulaszonek said May, the team’s top performer all year, came down with a virus for the race and couldn’t run as well as expected.

The junior girls team finished 18th.

Ulaszonek said conditions for the race were particularly bad as there was a very bad rain storm during the weekend in Vancouver making for very difficult running conditions.
