SIS Cross Country

On Tuesday, May 25 at Baxter Park, Woodleigh competed in the Division A SIS Cross Country Carnival.  The day itself was cold and strong winds were prevailing, making the already tough event even more challenging. We took along a team that was a bit light in numbers but big on heart. We asked some students to run in a higher age group to help fill our required runners in these categories, and several students bravely put their hands up and stepped up for the team. All students competing on the day gave their all and showed great camaraderie supporting their friends and teammates to achieve the best results they could.  

There were some outstanding individual performances on the day, including 

Tilly Boadle - 5th U/13 
Lily Lawson - 7th U/13 
Lucy Laverty - 9th U/13 
Orlando Clark - 3rd U/13 
Ted Meysztowicz - 5th U/15 
Harry Lawson - 7th U/15 
Amelia Evenden - 1st U/16 
Rory Goding - 2nd U/16 
Blake Steven - 8th U/17
Lexie Guy-Toogood - 5th U/21
Benny McConnell - 4th U/21 

Congratulations to all of our runners for representing us in such a positive manner. Thank you to the parents who braved the conditions to cheer on our competitors. Special mention to our team captains Lexie Guy-Toogood and Dylan Dowden (injured), who assisted in preparing each age group before their race and Mr Higgins, who spent the day out on the course encouraging and supporting our runners during each race.
