IRXC2016 in Waikanae 22.9.16
Sam Meecham and Matthew Fairhall ran for the Primary Sports Canterbury Cross Country team in Waikanae last Thursday in the IRXC2016. In Matthew’s first appearance at this level he did very well to place 17th out of 40 runners from around the country in the Year 6 race. Sam took an excellent 2nd place in the Year 7 Boys, although he wasn’t feeling the best – a gutsy effort which saw him lead the Canterbury A team to a Gold medal in the teams’ race.
Both boys helped Canterbury to win the Phil Costley Shield from Wellington for the first time in four years.
Year 6 Hockey Development Squad
Matthew Fairhall and Kavanah Lene played in a tournament at Nunweek Park on Saturday as part of being in the Year 6 Development Squad – well done!
Grace Perrett (in orange and blue)has been cycling on Wednesday afternoons at Tai Tapu and she gained second place overall in her grade with some excellent racing – well done Grace. She is now moving to tack cycling at Denton Oval for the Summer.
