Sentinel girls score perfect 10 at cross-country zone championships

The Sentinel Secondary senior girls cross-country running team scored a remarkable perfect 10 at the Vancouver Sea-to-Sky zone championships, the best score possible for the team competition.

The team score is calculated by adding up the placings of the school’s first four runners to give a total score, meaning the lower the score, the better. Sentinel runners stormed the finish line together, with Sidney Clement finishing second, Emmajean Neal third, Sofia Day fourth, Jade Clement fifth and Ehren Paterson sixth in a race that included 147 total runners. First place went to Van Tech’s Kendra Lewis, but she was not a member of team and so her tally was not factored into the team score. That meant Sentinel scored the bare minimum 1-2-3-4 to record their perfect 10. The second place team was from Handsworth, who scored 9-11-23-26 for a total of 69.

A North Shore squad also took top spot on the boys side, with Handsworth scoring 23 points to claim the zone title, 58 points ahead of Lord Byng. The Royals placed five runners in the top-20, with Cyrus Young finishing third, Theo Rhodes sixth, Jackson Davies ninth, Matthew Cusanelli 11th and Owain Cormack 16th.

Runners from across the province will race for gold at the B.C. High School Cross-Country Championships Saturday, Nov. 2 in Abbotsford.
