Jamie Hennessy of Maple Ridge secondary kicked off the 2015/16 cross-country season by taking home third place in the four-kilometre event at the 2015 Vancouver Spirit Run at Jerico Beach on Sunday.

Hennessy finished in a time of 16 minutes and 17 seconds, just one second behind Rhian Paterson of the Hershey Harriers Athletic Club. Megan Roxby of the HHAC won in a time of 16:12.

MRSS head coach Ken Elphick said they only sent a select few of the 36-member team to compete.

“We’re concentrating on getting in shape for the season,” said Elphick. “The team is practicing four days a week at the UBC research forest and it looks like it will be a strong year for MRSS cross country.”

Marshall Shupe of Maple Ridge Secondary finished eighth in the senior boys five kilometre event at the 2015 Vancouver Spirit Run on Sunday.

Shupe finished with a time of 19:09, finishing well behind Vancouver Olympic Club member Thomas Nobbs, who won with a time of 17:20.
