Reynolds takes run at provincials

Saanich school team finishes second at cross-country championships

Reynolds athlete Kalum Delaney

Reynolds secondary was among the province’s top cross-country schools once again in 2016 as the boys team finished second overall at the B.C. High School Cross Country Championships in West Kelowna on Saturday.

Only Oak Bay High, with overall winner Tyler Dozzi, beat Reynolds in the men’s team standings.

It’s another exemplary effort for Reynolds, despite Saanich managing just one runner in the top-10 of the senior categories. Reynolds’ Kalum Delaney was the top Saanich male at eighth, while Mount Douglas secondary’s Hannah Henry was Saanich’s top female in 13th.

Henry, a Grade 12 student who focuses primarily on triathlon, has seen her times plateau from previous cross-country championships due to her alternative training.

The next best Saanich runners were St. Andrew’s Grade 11 student Bridget Mateyko at 31st and Reynolds’ Lia Lancaster in 36th.

Lancaster was back at it Sunday, splitting time between Saanich Commonwealth Place, where she competed for the swim team, and Elk Lake, where she competed for the Reynolds rowing team. Lancaster helped both Reynolds teams qualify for provincials.

Mount Douglas athlete Matthew Thibodeau was 19th overall. The senior boys who put Reynolds on the podium were Delaney, Evan Wills (32nd), Sergio Duran (41st), and JJ Carr-Cannings (44th).
