The NSSAF 2018 Provincial Cross Country Championships just took place on a cold day in Cheticamp, Nova Scotia, and there the Sharks’ capped off one of the best seasons in memory.
Congratulations to Maggie Smith who, as expected, won the Senior Girls’ title, capping off a stellar running career here at SHSH, and helping propel her team into third place. Maggie was joined by teammates Mary Cate Driscoll-Sangster (23), Arika Miyashita (40), Gabrielle Cote (42), and Momoko Kambe (77). Big kudos as well to our Intermediate Girls’ team which placed second overall - an outstanding accomplishment! Congratulations Claire Rankin (12), Sarah MacAskill (14), Tallulah MacNeil (20), Sasha Oreskovich (35), Julia Wright (66), Trang Luong (80), and Hinako Fujita (83).
Hats off as well to our Junior Girls - Abby Titus, Elianne Cao, Kate Childs, Elisabeth Cormier, Anne Keith, Mabel Gerard, and Isabella Jennex - who placed 8th in a tough field of 17 teams from across the province, and also to Will Nickerson, our sole boy’s representative, who ran very well and placed 17th, beating out 70 other boys in the Intermediate Boys’ Division.
Thanks to our amazing roster of coaches - Ms. LeFrank, Mrs. Leadbetter, Mrs. Elworthy, and Mr. Griffiths - and to all our parents for their support. It was a fantastic season!
