The 2022 National Capital Secondary School Athletics Association cross-country running championships were held on Oct. 27 at Mooney’s Bay. Over 700 local high school athletes finished the four-to-six kilometre courses for novice, junior and senior girls and boys, with top runners advancing to the Nov. 5 OFSAA provincials in Uxbridge.
