Cross Country Success

Friday 28 May, 2021 A Report from the Sport Coordinator The College had 20 students compete with great success at the CSSA Cross Country today. The day was split into two competitions with Primary grades competing at the start of the day followed by Secondary students after lunch. The morning was a wonderful experience for many of the Year 4 to 6 students who had not had the chance to compete at a State level before. Violet Burgum, Year 5, received standout results in the Primary races, placing eleventh in U10 Girls; first reserve for CIS competition. The Secondary students achieved the best results that the College has ever had at the State level. Jackson Tenhave in the Open 18+ category won his race convincingly, finishing 300m ahead of second place. Following his success Logan Burkinshaw and William Carmichael placed 5th and 8th respectively in the U16 Boys. Freya Howard followed that up with an 8th place in U15 Girls. All these students had trained hard and it is wonderful to see reward for their effort. Especially Freya, who has attended CSSA Cross Country since Year 3 and steadily improved every year, placing 58th her first time and consistently improving. Congratulations to all our students on an exceptional day out where they represented the College amazingly, showing outstanding support and encouragement to one another.
