After the rescheduling of the District Cross Country was moved from a blustery, cold and wet Friday, to a beautiful sunny Tuesday, the 29 Cross Country runners from GCCC were brimming with anticipation ahead of the daylong competition. The venue where the students would be competing for the day was Elizabeth Daniels Park, Buderim. Here, depending on their age group, they would be taking part in a series of distances, utilising most of the complex, consisting of cricket ovals, netball courts and surrounding bush tracks.
|13 Boys / Girls||3km|
|14 Boys / Girls||4km|
|15 Boys / Girls||4km|
|16 / Open Girls||4km|
|16 / Open Boys||6km|
The staff who attended the day were very proud of the organisation and diligence shown by the students in preparation for their individual races. All of the students competed with great perseverance and determination, refusing to give up and carried on despite fatigue, thirst, injury or stitch.
There were some standout performances on the day. These students excelled and have now earned a place at the upcoming Regional Cross Country Event which will take place on 3 June.
– Natasha Hoeksema, 14 Girls, 5th Place
– Cameron Shervey, 14 Boys, 5th Place
– Jacqueline Roach, 15 Girls, 3rd Place
GCCC would like to wish all the students the best in their future sporting endeavors.
