Seven members of the ADSS Women’s PE class, along with three teachers, traveled to Victoria on April 28 to participate in the Times Colonist 10K race.

None of the students had ever run 10 kilometres before, teach Karli Van Vliet said.

The race was a test of both their physical and mental toughness, she added

Megan Skjodal led the team with a finish time of 59:34, but her classmates were close behind her with an average finish time of 1:01:29.  The team placed 30th in the Island Farms School Team Challenge.

Congratulations to Megan Skjodal, Kyana Poulsen, Shayla Bujotzek, Gina Grumbach, Samantha Oldale, Anneke Contant, and Cassidy McHale for a job well done.
