There are a few new faces on top of the leader board following the first stop on the West Kootenay High School Cross Country Running circuit.

J.V. Humphries Eagles Joe Cox and Taylor Wilson took advantage of some home course secrets to capture the Senior Boy’s and Girl’s titles at last week’s Kaslo River Run.

Cox nipped defending champion Sean DeGroot of L.V. Rogers at the wire to claim the boy’s race while Wilson outlasted Darya Huser of Salmo to win the girl’s competition.

Peter Hinke of LVR finished third behind Cox and DeGroot with Micah May of Trafalgar fourth.

Cail Spencer of LVR and Eli Burkowski of J.V. Humphries finished sixth and seventh.

In the girl’s race Lara Hunter of J.V. Humphries was third followed by teammate Tasha Hewat.

In the junior races Kieran (no last name submitted) of Trafalgar and Kalina (also, no last name submitted) of Mount Sentinel topped the boy’s and girl’s races, respectively.

The West Kootenay High School Cross Country makes its way to the Golden City for a stop Wednesday hosted by the Rossland Royals.

The race was originally scheduled for Mount Sentinel but was rescheduled.

LVR hosts the Kootenay Kramp October 5th with J. Lloyd Crowe in Trail providing the route for the final race of the regular season October 12th.

The West Kootenay Championships go October 19th at the Camp Busk Trails south of Nelson.
The East/West Kootenay Championships are hosted in Fernie October 26th.

The top runners qualify for the B.C. High School Cross Country Championships November 5th in Kelowna.
