NANAIMO, British Columbia – Fourth-year Declan White (South Surrey, B.C.) led the way for the Spartans at the BC Championships, finishing fifth overall, while second-year Nick Colyn (Langley) won the junior division Saturday at Beban Park.


White finished the eight kilometre race in 24:34 to set the tone for the Spartans. Not far behind him was third-year Caleb de Jong (Winnipeg), who finished eighth overall in 24:41.38.


Colyn finished 13th overall in 25:00, but with his performance, he earned top spot amongst junior runners.
