Sacred Heart High School finished off its 2012 cross country season with a second place team finish at provincials. Boosted by four top 20 performances from their runners the Saints finished second out of a large field and nearly came out as the top school trailing 5A school Aden Bowman from Saskatoon by just four points.
The achievement is impressive from a school the size of Sacred Heart, who were competing against schools nearly triple their size.
The scoring for the event took the scores of the top four runners of each school and say Sacred finishing with a score of 55 just narrowly trailing Aden Bowmanís score of 59.
Notable finishes were Justine Zarowny who placed 6th in Midget Girls, Rita Fetsch who placed 11th in Senior Girls, Elias Giannoulis who placed 18th in Senior Boys and Petro Vivchar who placed 20th in Junior Boys.
Coach Rachel Sterzuk was extremely pleased with the team silver medal as well as the strong racing of each individual athlete. The Saints long distance runners will now await the beginning of the outdoor track season in the spring or run for the local track club during the indoor track season.
