INTER SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY
Today we took along 30 St Emilie’s children to take part in an Inter school cross country competition.
After winning the event last year, we went into today feeling very confident. Our children had trained for a number of weeks leading up to this event and we had selected a very strong group of runners to represent our school.
We began the day very strongly with Taylah Haboldt winning the year 4 girls race and Taj Forrest running second in the boys event.
Our year 5 team was up next. All of our year 5 runners were able to run consistent races and we had a number of top 10 finishers.
Finally it was the year 6s turn. Shenae Hartree absolutely dominated her race, winning by more than100 metres and then Matteo Rossiello ran an amazing second in his race that contained a big sprint to the finish.
At the end of the, St Emilie’s finished in 2nd place.
It was an extremely close count, with only 5 points separating us from winning the competition.
A big thank you to the many parents who turned up to support and cheer on our kids.
We have a an exciting group of athletes at St. Emilie’s and we are already looking forward to the Track and Field events later this term.
And yes, the weather cooperated which was excellent!
