FS McBeth came 4th in his category sending him to compete for regionals along with cadet Quitua who came 2nd within her category.

“I really enjoyed my day today, it was a great course and although was very muddy I enjoyed it overall and I will definitely compete again next year. I made a couple of new friends as I ran along and we all had common interests including cadets and the events”. Cadet Clark
“The wing cross country course was very muddy but also a great course that really tested endurance. I was very satisfied with my placing and am looking forward to going to the regional competition and I will definitely participate again next year”. Flight Sergeant McBeth
