Greater Victoria high school cross-country manages to pull off a season

PCS swimmer Teagan Hunt won Lambrick Park Secondary's 26th King and Queen of the Hill race up Mount Douglas. With all other fall high school sports shut down, organizers squeezed out a semblance of a Greater Victoria cross-country season with a little ingenuity. Using a cycling-style time-trial method, runners were clocked running individually. Schools ran the Cedar Hill Golf Course chip trail on different days over two weeks with the times posted online.

COVID-19 Update - November 2020

What an amazing summer it was! Everyone was able to get outside, we introduced many new activities and attendance was very high. As we enter into the darker, cooler, damper days of our not-so-bad Victoria winter, we have added a lot of pool time. We have been very fortunate to have top level support from UVic and SCP.
