It was a fantastic day on Friday 18 May at the Aquinas College Cross Country. The day kicked off with our Yr.7 and 8 students competing and then flowed through to the Under 14, Under 16 and Under 19 athletes.
There were several close finishes over the day with students cheering on their peers all the way to the finish. The Yr. 8 Boy’s race was one of the most exciting with Hugo McCarroll managing to hold the lead in the sprint finish with Brayden Stowers. The U16 Boy’s race was also hotly contended with the lead pack changing positions several times over the course of the race. Connor Farrell managed to take out first place even with his freshly broken thumb.
It was a great day with all students competing, supporting their peers and earning valuable House Points. It was great to see so many parents supporting their children and also teachers running within the races, specifically Mr Dalton who placed 2nd in the U19 Boy’s race and Mrs Gilbert who placed 3rd in the U19 Girl’s race.
A special congratulations to all of our athletes who received placings on the day and have been chosen to represent Aquinas College at the Inter-School Events.
