School Cross Country 2024

The school cross country took place on April 8 (Girls – Year 9s, Year 10s and Seniors) and Tuesday (Boys – Year 9s, Year 10s, Seniors and School House).
Conditions on both days were sunny and comfortable.
The students completed the traditional cross-country course of running around our lower fields, onto Alberton Ave, around the school farm and back on the lower fields to finish.
The competitive senior boys did two laps of the course.
Results are as follows:

Year 9 Girls (Junior) – 1st Claudia Verkleij, 2nd Summer Bundock, 3rd Stella O’Sullivan
Year 9 Boys (Junior) – 1st Jy Gonzales, 2nd Jasper Metcalfe, 3rd Lennix Tolcher

Assistant Director of Sport Mr Crossan said, “Highlights over the two days included some close finishes for the podium spots.  In the Year 10 Boys race, only 3 seconds separated first and second place.  There was also a close finish in the Year 9 Girls race with 12 seconds separating the top six placings.
“A big thanks to Mr Dempster and Ms Inwood for their organisation for the event.  Thanks also goes to all those staff who assisted with marshalling, those staff who ran on the day with the students and all the prefects/senior sports classes that also helped.”
