The College had a larger number of athletes who qualified to compete at this level, but due to injury and sickness some athletes could not attend.
Compared to previous years the number of athletes competing this year was a lot less, but the times achieved by those who qualified for All Schools were very quick.
Some great results on Tuesday at the NSWCCC Cross Country Championships with 17 Broken Bay runners from 8 Broken Bay Schools now through to the NSW All Schools Championships on 22 July.
Under 17 – 40 Athletes Competed (1st Place Time: 19:09)
William Browning finished 7th with a time of 20:01:90.
Under 15 – 51 Athletes Competed (1st Place Time: 13:43:80)
Deakin Wright finished 17th with a time of 15:49:40.
Under 14 – 55 Athletes Competed (1st Place Time: 14:27:20)
Cooper Hall finished 22nd with a time of 16:21:00.
Under 13 – 64 Athletes Competed (1st Place Time: 10:45:80)
Liam Smith finished 12th with a time of 11:21:20.
Conditions were very windy on the day with the only saving grace being a tailwind on the straight at the start and at the finish. It was a strong headwind all through the back section over the undulating hills.
Thank you to all the supporting family members who attended the event to support their athletes and the College. The students were great athletes and ambassadors for St Edward’s.
