Provincial Cross Country Championships, Wetaskiwin, Nov. 2nd.Wonderful weather for cross-country at this time of the year. 20 Harriers took part and it was especially good to have present-day University of Alberta athletes Fiona Connolly and Dane Boczowski competing in Harriers colours. Lots of really strong performances, especially the U 14 girls and the U 18 men who both took silver team medals. Very pleasing performances individually especially Zoey Turcotte, 4th in U 14 girls, Jason Ushko, 5th in U 18 men and, of course Sadie Sigfstead, winner of the U 18 race by nearly a minute.
