For a small school, Thetis Island Elementary School had some big-time representation in the School District 79 cross country race in Duncan.
Five Thetis Island students competed in the event at Evans Park last Thursday. It was the first-ever running race for all of them and also the first time in many years that Thetis Island Elementary has sent participants to the race.
Lucas Bieber came in a remarkable fifth place in the Grade 3 boys race. Kai Kasting (8th), Matthias Bannister (9th), Raglan Gall (13th) and Westley Knowles all completed the Grade 5 boys race in fine form.
Considering the number of athletes from all the district schools in each division, the results by all of the boys were outstanding.
