Despite inclement weather the night before, our 2017 Cross Country ran in cool, overcast conditions; perfect for a long distance event.
This was our second year on the western Maitland Golf Course and the greens, reservoir and bridges made a perfect backdrop for a competitive field.
Thank you to the Sam Holmes, Naomi Davey and the CYS Sports Committee for their guidance and organisation. Thank you to the many parents who acted as marshals this year, directing students around the course and to many staff who gave so freely of their time help.
Thank you also to the Maitland Golf Club who were so accommodating with our use of the course and to Apex who gave us access to toilet facilities at their clubrooms. Supervision and photographic records prepared by teaching staff was also appreciated as was the way our students were encouraged to do their best.
Participation in the event was high with 103 students in Years Reception – 7 from both campuses taking part in running the course.
After the allocation of place getting and participation points the final scores were Eagles 244 and Sharks 208. Congratulations to the Eagles as the winners of the 2017 Cross Country trophy. Place getters received ribbons and all students received a certificate acknowledging their participation.
