Silas Jones had the Hillview run of the day at the Primary Sports Canterbury Cross Country yesterday at Halswell Quarry. He had an exceptional effort to earn 9th place in a field of 120 Year 5 Boys over a muddy 2km course. By getting in the top ten he has been selected to run for Canterbury in the Inter-Regional Cross Country in Nelson in September. What a super effort from Silas who was 7th in the South Zone event and only made the Canterbury race due a boy going overseas!
Our Year 8 Boys had a fantastic race with all five making it into the top 31 places and wunning the Silver in the Zones team event (all Hillview!). Max Blockley (10th), Zachary Landers (14th) and Matthew Fairhall (21st) have made it into the race against Year 8s from Intermediate next Wednesday at Roto Kohatu Reserve. Noah Davis (28th) and Duncan McCall (31st) both ran brilliantly well in a field of 105 finishers.
Elliot Graves was very impressive to take 9th, Toby Meecham 24th and Henry Copeland 50th in a field of 117 Year 7 Boys over the muddy and testing 3km course.
Bonnie Graves ran very well to place 44th in the Year 5 Girls but only 30 seconds from 18th!
