Coming back stronger this week from her race the week prior, Chilliwack Secondary’s, Christina Peet Williams, finished one position better in a deeper field. She kicked strongly as did third-place finisher Ella Ballard of Royal Bay Secondary on Vancouver Island.

The three finished in the time of 17:42, 18:20, and 18:22, respectively. “I tried a bit of a different tactic today, where I sat back with the lead group. When I had that extra strength and they were tiring, I just picked them off one by one,” shared Peet Williams. “I think it’s good for the self-esteem when I pick people off one at a time, rather than getting passed,” she laughed. “It just felt good the entire time. It was a good race.” “I felt good about it for sure.”SHOW LESS
