We were very proud of our 13 runners that took part with 1500 others today in very muddy and wet ground conditions in the Primary Sports Canterbury Cross Country Championships at Halswell Quarry today.
Luke Mitchell ran an awesome race to place 7th out of 130 Year 6 boys to qualify for the Primary Sports Canterbury Cross Country team for the second year in a row. Not far behind him, in about 15th was Michael Hermens – what an outstanding effort!
There are no official results out yet but Oliver Graves was well up in the Year 5 Boys race and would be close to the top 20. Josh Walker ran a well judged race in the Year 8 Boys’ 3km to qualify in the top 20 for the races next week when the Year 7 and 8 Primaries take on the top 20 in the Intermediates.
Well done to all of the team who certainly slipped and slided in the mud but didn’t give up. We will report on other results and the Zone teams’ results when they come to hand.
