Students from 13 schools participate in Kamsack cross-country meet

There were a total of 17 different races during Sept. 22 at Kamsack Comprehensive, with representatives from Grades 3 and up.

KAMSACK — Approximately 350 students from 13 schools within the Good Spirit School Division were at the Kamsack Comprehensive Institute on Sept. 22 for the second annual Assiniboine Valley Run.

There were a total of 17 different races during the day, from the youngest runners in Grade 3 to the oldest senior student runners, who were Grade 12 students, said Ryan Lambert, one of the organizers of the meet. “Ribbons were awarded to the top five runners in each race and there were a lot of excited and exhausted runners at the end of the day.

“The weather was ideal for cross-country running and everyone at the KCI was eager to host the meet again after several years of being unable to do so,” Lambert said.

Of the 17 students who placed first in each of the 17 different races, one was a Victoria School student in Kamsack, one was from KCI, and one was from Norquay.

Placing first in the various categories of competition were:

  • Under 9 (U9) male, Landon Erikson of Preeceville;
  • U9 female, Chloe Anderson of Norquay;
  • U10 male, Braxton Fifield of Churchbridge;
  • U10 female, Layla Sas of Victoria School;
  • U11 male, Adarius Schigol-Peterson of MC Knoll School of Yorkton;
  • U11 female, Kalea Criddle of Yorkdale;
  • U12 male, Gavin Erickson of Preeceville;
  • U12 female, Jorja Fraser of Churchbridge;
  • U13 male, Grady Halyk of Melville;
  • U13 female, Kezia Keough of Langenburg;
  • U14 male, Hudson Maier of Preeceville;
  • U14, female, Jesse Mucha of Melville;
  • U15 male: Cameron Wirl of Langenburg;
  • U15 female, Savannah Olson of Sturgis;
  • U16 male, Jerin Keough of Langenburg;
  • U16 female, no entries;
  • U17 male, Isaiah Maier of Preeceville, and

“I would like to send a huge shoutout to everyone who helped make the meet a huge success – my staff volunteers, the cross-country coaches, the students who helped set up the starting area and served as course spotters, and the parents and community members who also came out to either help with the day or cheer on their young athletes,” Lambert said. “Without all of your help, none of this is possible.”
