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.

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.
