Megan Evans and Tayla Koerber gave it their best, but the Revelstoke Secondary School runners could not overcome the fast Sim sisters of Salmon Arm in a cross-country running race on the Illecillewaet Greenbelt on Wednesday.

Evans was third in a time of 15:40 and Koerber fourth in 16:34. Maxine Opatril of RSS also cracked the top 10 with a time of 17:25.

The race was held on the greenbelt and took advantage of the new Mark Kingsbury Bridge. Starting at Kovach Park, the runners took off towards the Illecillewaet Briddge before looping back and crossing the Black Bridge. They did a loop on the southside of the Illecillewaet before crossing back to the finish line.

In team results, Salmon Arm cleaned up, taking the junior boys, and senior boys and girls categories. RSS was second in the senior girls and third in senior boys. Seven schools took part in the race.
