"It was a huge honor to win coach of the year I think it shows how far our program has come in such a short time. I have a great support system with my assistant coaches and athletes that have bought into the program 100% we wouldn't be successful without them. Yesterday was a very humbling experience and I couldn't be more excited about the future of our program." said Head Coach Kevin Paterson
CCSJ improved their finish from the 2013 CCAC XC Championships where they finished fifth overall.
