Bayside District Cross Country Running Championship

On Friday 19 May, over 70 students from Minimbah travelled to Senior Campus to compete in the annual Bayside District Cross Country Running event.

In cold and wet running conditions, they ran on a course that winds its way around the Wildlife Nature Reserve in the top paddocks behind Cruden Oval. Competing with over 500 students from 11 other schools our students produced a sensational team effort, which saw them win the Division 2 Junior Shield, the Division 2 Senior Shield, and the Combined Team Championship Shield.

The team was very well led by a large group of Year 6 Students who were nominated as Team Leaders for this very physically demanding event, and for all the many training sessions in the weeks leading up to the championship.

Final scores for the Division 2 Championship were:

1st Woodleigh School – 649

2nd Karingal PS - 1022

3rd St Francis Xavier PS - 1241

4th Frankston East PS - 1348

5th Ballam Park PS -1407

6th Karingal Heights PS - 2200

Congratulations to all team members and to the following students who qualified to run in the Northern Peninsula Division Championships at the Hastings Foreshore Reserve on Wednesday 31 May by placing in the top 10 at the District Championships. The whole school community congratulates them for outstanding personal achievements and wishes them well in their endeavours. Well done!
