Runners excel despite cool weather

On Thursday 30 May the College competed in the Southern SATIS Cross Country Carnival, which was held at a very chilly Pontville Recreational Grounds.

We had some amazing individual results with Cate Clingeleffer (Year 7) and Georgia Chambers (Year 10) taking out first place in their respective events.

In the Age Group pennants, the College recorded the following results:

U13 – 3rd
U14 – 5th
U15 – 2nd
U16 – 4th
Open – 3rd

Well done to all athletes! The age group results show how well we performed as a team with every runner playing a crucial part regardless of where they may have finished.

Congratulations the College’s Year 12 Co-Captains, Anna Blackwell and Georgia Stalker who represented St Mary’s in their last cross country.

On behalf of the HPE Staff, I would like to thank all the girls for their positive attitudes on the day, you definitely went more than one pace beyond, and should be proud of your efforts. It was from all accounts a pretty tough course and you showed real resilience and guts out there!

Next up we’ve got the Tasmanian All Schools Cross Country (Tuesday 2 July) at Symmons Plains. We’re looking forward to another successful team effort!
