More than 240 elementary school students took part in last week’s cross-country series race at Thames Grove Conservation Area. Brock Labadie of John N. Given finished first in the boys’ grades 2-4 group while Sienna Collins of Gregory Drive won the girls’ division. In grades 5-6, Justin Ewald of McNaughton Avenue was first in the boys’ category and Sofia Makinen of Ste. Marie won the girls’ category. Jeff Carey of Georges P. Vanier won the grades 7-8 boys’ race and Genevieve Sasseville of John N. Given took the girls’ race. Event co-ordinator Sandy Blackshaw said more than a dozen volunteers, including a contingent from Blenheim District High School, helped make the day a success.
