Dover Bay's senior boys' team captured the B.C. School Sports crown on Saturday in Victoria.

Dover Bay Secondary School’s cross-country team is the quickest in the province for a second-straight year.

The LazerHawks senior boys’ team captured the B.C. School Sports crown on Saturday in Victoria.

Thomas Oxland led his team with a 10th-place finish out of 235 runners at the event. Nic Ascui was 11th, Miles Huynh came 16th and Peter Oxland was 17th. Josh Bailey, Anthony Serban and Carter Higgins rounded out the team.

The boys recorded the third-best team score in the history of the competition dating back to 1970. Over the last eight years, Dover’s boys, coached by Bob Saunders, have won seven medals at the cross-country championships.

The squad won the Island championship last month, also in Victoria.
