Top-10 finish for Bruchet at nationals

South Surrey runner places 10th at Canadian Cross Country Championships

Luc Bruchet’s reign as Canada’s top men’s cross-country runner is over – but he still has a top-10 finish to add to his running resume.

Bruchet, an Elgin Park Secondary alum and UBC grad, placed 10th overall in the 10-km senior men’s race at Canadian  Cross Country Championships, clocking a time of 32 minutes, 55 seconds – just 38 seconds behind winner Chris Winter of the Speed River Track Club from Guelph, Ont.

“Not my best today, can’t win ‘em all,” Bruchet posted on Twitter after the race. “Congrats to all the competitors out there… great effort out there in the (snow).”

Though he did not finish on the podium, Bruchet’s Point Grey Track Club – made up of UBC alumni – finished first overall in the senior men’s team standings.

Surrey’s Justin Kent, a former high-school star at Kwantlen Park, was 13th overall, while South Surrey’s Blair Johnston was 36th.

In the youth-division race – a four-km circuit – Clayton Heights’ Christina Sevsek claimed top spot, winning the race in 15:01. Her sister, Julie, was fifth, just 15 seconds off the lead pace.
