Select Scotch students in Year 4, 5 and 6 took part in the annual Inter-School Cross Country which was held on the College grounds on Thursday 27 June. The excitement was high for all the boys as they prepared to race against their peers from the other six PSA schools. The Year 4 students got off to a great start with Lincoln McIntosh and William Carmichael running strongly for the Scotch team. Each boy's run counted toward the overall score, so consistency of performance and strength in depth is paramount in a cross country team. All the Year 4 students ran with Scotch sitting third after the Year 4 race. The Year 5 students were up next and performed fantastically with all the students running to and beyond their potential. A special mention to Ben Campbell who won the Year 5 race. Aquinas still led by some margin going into the Year 6 race and it was a great team effort from all the Year 6 students that saw Scotch pip Trinity and Aquinas to the shield. Oliver Knuckey won the Year 6 race whilst Caden Hart ran a fantastic personal race. This was the fourth year in a row that Scotch has won the shield outright and the fifth year they have won the shield. This is a testament to the students training and ability to perform as a team and run for each other against some very strong opposition...
