Five Primary students travelled to Sydney recently to represent our school as part of the Riverine Association of Schools (RAS) team for the Combined Independent Schools (CIS)Cross Country.
The five students have reflected on their day:
Jaxson McMinn
“It was a good day, I came 40th and it was really hard because it was hilly. There was a false start to begin with because everyone was nervous.”
Isabella Crossman
“I came 8th overall so I was really proud of myself. It was a hard track because of the hills and the lots of little ditches. The other competitors were really fast.”
Georgie Gough
“I was really nervous walking up to the start line. It was a really hilly course and there was over 100 other people in the race. I came 59th overall and I ran a really good time.”
Poppy Palmer
“I found the course to be pretty easy, I came 24th out 100 other students. There were lots of really fast runners. My legs were really sore from BIPSA athletics the day before, so I was really proud of how I went.”
Georgia McLean
It was a really tough course with lots of hills and I believe I came 70th overall in my age group. The weather was really nice in Sydney for the race. Before the race I was really nervous and I had butterflies in my stomach!”
Thankyou to all the parents who were involved in taking their children to Sydney.
