Girls' School Cross Country 2020

June 24, 2020 at 2:45 PM

In total contrast to last year’s postponed events due to wet and stormy weather, two consecutive days of beautiful winter sunshine cleared the way for two fantastic days of cross country racing this week, for our Junior and Middle School girls.

In a change of venue this year, the Junior School girls joined the Boys’ School juniors on Martyn Wilson Field at the bottom of Shore Road - just across from where the new Girls’ School is currently under construction! It was exciting to see a mound of earthworks and diggers busy at work preparing the site for our new school!

With best foot forward, the Juniors got this year’s cross country underway, pulling out all the stops to make their way around the new course. The following day, the girls in Years 4-6 headed to the College for their event. The College grounds provides a challenging route with both distance and hills to prepare our top runners for the zone event. With so little rain in recent months, the track was firm and dry underfoot making for some very competitive times.

Well done to all the runners and especially those who gained podium places. Cargill won the Junior School event and Wishart the Middle School. The senior girls will take to the track with their Year 7 and 8 peers at the College event early next term – this final event will determine the overall House champions.
