The R.E. Mountain Eagles junior boys team won the Fraser Valley cross-country banner.

The race was held Oct. 28 at South Surrey’s Crescent Park.

In the team competition, Mountain had the top three finishers in Zach Wyatt, Tate Wyatt and Jordan Schmidt, with Danny Lee scoring 35 points for a score of 41, which was three better than Holy Cross. The Mountain runners had an average time of 17:05.13.

“That was the goal, to win the banner,” said Mountain coach Debbi McKinnon.

“The boys have been training really hard since the summer.

“They felt that they could do it and they went after it.”

And the Yorkson Creek Wolves Grade 8 squad was third with 39 points.

Felix Allen was third overall (and second among team runners) with Jacob Park, Luke Chung and Lance Pablo rounding out the team.

The runners will compete at the provincial championships Nov. 7 at Vancouver’s Jericho Beach Park.
