Middle School Inter-House Cross Country

Our Middle School Inter-House Cross Country was held on Wednesday 17 May during what was a fine and sunny Autumn afternoon. The boys were excited and ready to run. The first of the races was the Year 6 2.5km race which had boys running out around Claremont Lake and finishing on the Scotch playing fields. A very impressive effort from Jack Cook (6.4E, Bruce House) 1st, Marco Ghiselli (6.3T, Gordon House) 2nd and Alexander Lee (6.1S, Gordon House) 3rd.

The Year 7 students completed the same 2.5km course with excellent performances from many students. Congratulations to Tane Hasler (7.2H, James House) on coming 1st, Rory King (7.6M, Bruce) 2nd and Rohan Baldwin (7.1W, Andrew House) 3rd.

Our Year 8 students completed a slightly longer 3km course. Gregory McVicker (8.1T, Gordon House) came in 1st, Tony Ghiselli (8.3O, Gordon House) 2nd and Dylan Loader (8.2R, Bruce House) coming in 3rd.

The final House standing points were:

  • Gordon House: 6133
  • Robert House: 5735
  • Bruce House: 5366
  • David House: 4815
  • Andrew House: 4793
  • James House: 4256

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