Fall means cross country district competitions in the Horizon Central Athletic Association. The event went on October 4 at the Carlton Trail Ski Club just west of Humboldt, with winners from two previous pre-district events advancing. 

Muenster finished top place for schools with rivals Lake Lenore and Wynyard Comp close

behind in second and third. 

In the senior categories, Kira Wignes of Viscount and Joe Green of HCI repeated their top finishes from pre-districts. The junior division saw Claire Gullacher of Englefeld and

Dawson Malinowski of Wynyard Comp take first place honours. In intermediate girls, Hailee Woodhouse of Holdfast came out on top, while Muenster’s Jarret Rude topped the field in intermediate boys. 

The top 10 finishers in the intermediate, junior, and senior categories qualify for the SHSAA Provincial Cross Country Championships on Sat. Oct. 15 at the Wapiti ski hill area near Gronlid.  

The full list of participants in all categories is available at the HCAA website.
