Thirty Year Drought Broken


Our TAS Cross Country girls broke a thirty-year drought this week when they won the cross country competition for the first time. It was a very successful day at the carnival for both the boys and girls with both teams improving on last year’s placings.

The boys moved from fourth place in 2017 to third place this year. The stellar performance from the girls saw them moving from fifth place in 2017 to first place. The combined student success saw us with a third placing overall; only four points away from second place.

The improvement in both the teams is testament to the extraordinary commitment to training that the team has shown this season. Over 14 weeks, 120 students have attended a combined total of 1346 training sessions and covered a combined distance of approximately 8 700km. For reference, this means they have run the equivalent of a return trip to Perth.

Congratulations to all students and staff who contributed to this wonderful achievement.
