The Muskie cross-country team wrapped up its season at the NWOSSAA final at the Kamview Nordic Centre in Thunder Bay last Wednesday.
Jake McTavish was the top Muskie finisher in the senior boys’ race, moving up four spots on the final lap to wind up in 19th place.
In the senior girls’ race, both Anikka McTavish and Deanna Saunders placed in the top 30.
Brett and Marina Jewell, meanwhile, competed in the junior boys’ and girls’ divisions, respectively.
“Once again, the trails were tough and our runners faced many hills,” co-coach Natasha Shack wrote in an e-mail to the Times.
“[But] they all finished with a smile on their face,” she added.
