EMCS runners see end of the tunnel

The Edward Milne community school (EMCS) cross country running season ended this week.

The Edward Milne community school (EMCS) cross country running season ended this week, with the BC High Schools Championship meet in Langley on Saturday, November 2.   The school is already looking forward to next year’s team.

It has been a good season for EMCS runners who have competed very well at the junior and senior levels for both boys and girls.  The school colours were worn over fields and hills at the six Vancouver Island cross country meets.

Matthew Thomson and Aidan Lindel benefitted from the strong running program at Journey Middle School before coming to EMCS this fall.  Matthew won the Vancouver Island Championship for Grade 9 boys at Beaver Lake on October 15.

Brandon and Austin Willson will be missed next fall after four years of representing EMCS.  Senior boys’ hopes will be pinned on Davin Laur who has an incredible finishing kick and Gareth Larsen, a gutsy rugger player who tried a new sport this fall.

The girls on the team showed both grace and grit.  Hopefully, seniors Emily Bernard and Courtney Shutt will demonstrate their talents again next year, along with speedster Sydni Burns.

The team is grateful to the Sooke Trail and Road Runners (STARR) Club for its financial and coaching support.
