Cross Country Success

Cross Country Success

On Tuesday 19th July our carefully selected St Andrews teams participated in the CSEN Interschool Cross Country Carnival at Bundoora Park.  The course was set over winding and hilly terrain covering a distance of 2km (Year 3-4), 3km (Year 5-7 and 8-12 girls) and 4km (Year 8-12 boys).  Our students went in with reasonably high expectations after performing so admirably at the CSEN Swimming event earlier in the year, hopeful of a strong placing but nervous nonetheless.  

We had a number of individuals and teams place in the top 3 for their age group, including: 

Chavella U11 – 3rd

Daniel M U12 – 1st

Hailey U13 – 1st

Carla U13 – 2nd

Brayden U21 – 3rd


U9 Girls – 3rd

U10 Girls – 2nd

U11 Girls – 1st

U13 Girls – 2nd

U21 Girls – 2nd


U11 Boys – 1st

U16 Boys – 3rd

U21 Boys – 2nd

St Andrews were named as Primary School Champions in B Division and claimed the shield for the very first time!  This is an outstanding achievement considering we already won the Swimming shield in 2016, with only the Athletics to come.  We also placed 3rd in Secondary School, another huge improvement on past attempts.

A special thank you needs to go to all teachers who were involved in training students during lunchtimes in Term 2, and an even bigger thank you to the students who gave up lunchtimes to see how far we could take this – the shield is an awesome reward for their effort!
