It was a great day of the NACI Cross Country team on Monday, Oct. 1 at the Zone 7 Cross Country Championships, as five local athletes closed out the day with top-5 finishes.

Both Ben Perrett and Lara Denbow found themselves at the top of the podium, with Perret winning winning the Varsity Boys 5K and Denbow claiming the Junior Varsity Girls 3K. Close on Denbow’s heels was teammates Shelby Gluska, who placed second and Rebecca-Lynn Pedersen who was fourth. Meanwhile, Ethan Lizotte took third place in the Junior Varsity Boys 4K race. After these solid results from Zones, the team is now preparing for the Provincial Cross Country Championship, scheduled for Oct. 17 in Roseilse, MB. Best of luck to all the athletes at that upcoming event.
