Kincardine has some of the fastest midget girls in the region.

The Kincardine District Secondary School midget girls cross-country team claimed the CWOSSA overall title Thursday.

Cheyenne Hunter finished first, and Kortney Watson second in a field of 113 racers to lead KDSS to the division title. KDSS’ other two runners, MacKenzie Marshall and Hayley Stewart, finished 21st and 28th to help the team to its first CWOSSA championship in years.

The Knights also had a strong finish in the midget boys division, largely because of Jesse Chen’s second place finish. He was the second runner to cross the line in a field of 164. The Knights finished fourth in the overall midget boys standings, just one point behind Resurrection Collegiate of Kitchener. Nathan Fohkens of KDSS was 16th in the race, Gerritt Satosek was 30th and Francis Lozada finished 38th.

Kincardine was 11th in the junior girls division, with four runners finishing between 38th position and 71st place. KDSS wasn’t among the top 16 schools in the junior boys division or among the top 30 schools in the senior girls division.

However, Hayley Green finished in 10th spot in the senior girls race.

The senior boys were 19th overall. Alex Morariu was 36th and Alex McNulty was 63rd in a field of 300+ runners.

Chen, Hunter, Watson, and Stewart qualify for the provincial championship meet, OFSAA, which will be held next week.
