Middle School Inter-House Cross Country

The annual Middle School Inter-House Cross Country was held last Wednesday 29 May, on what was a beautiful and sunny Autumn afternoon.

The first race of the event was the Year 6 students and coming through the finish line 1st with an amazing performance was Oliver Knuckey (6.3).  Oliver broke the previous Year 6 2.5km record by a monumental 15 seconds, running 8:59min.  


The Year 7 students completed the same 2.5km course with excellent performances from many students.  In an extremely tight finish, Cody Curtin (7.4) completed the course in 9:17min and came in 1st, then one second behind him was Tex Cross (7.3) in 2nd place finishing in 9:18min, and closely behind him was AJ Merry (7.6) finishing in 3rd place in 9:19min.


Year 8 students completed the 3km course with Henry Feutrill (8.6) winning in 10:35min in a very impressive run.  Jack Cook (8.6) came in 2nd place finishing in 10:44min, followed by Alexander Lee (8.2) 11:08min in what were really great performances.


The final House standing points were:

  • 1st            Robert House:           4782
  • 2nd        Andrew House:          4191
  • 3rd        Bruce House:             4099
  • 4th        James House:            4073
  • 5th        David House:             3840
  • 6th        Gordon House:          3769


It was fantastic to see so many students give their personal best on the day.  Thank you to all parents who came down to support their sons in what was a very successful afternoon.
