On Friday 23rd April, 19 enthusiastic and talented athletes braved the cool of the morning to be at school by 7.00am to compete in the PDSSSC Cross Country Carnival at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre. A total of 642 students competed on the day.
All students were outstanding ambassadors for the St Agnes School Community. They participated with skill, determination and courage, running distances ranging from 3km up to 6 km.
Their support and encouragement of each other and the sportsmanship they displayed to their fellow competitors was as impressive as their individual performances. There was a shared sense of community and spirit within the St Agnes School team.
The individual performances of all students were noteworthy, with most of them finishing in the top 20.
There were a few stand out performances. Dimo Dimo won the Boys U’15 event and Chloe Watson placed 4th in the Girls U’16 competition. Both students will now compete at the NSWCCC Cross Country Championships at Eastern Creek in June. Andrea Plaatjes placed 7th in the Girls U’13 competition, missing representation at the next level by one place - or a metre in terms of distance.
The full list of competitors follows.
Year 7 - Emily Ahad, Shana Allen, Lincoln Johnston, Lucas Lombardo, Aayan Patel, Andrea Plaatjes, Summer Reynolds, Liam Robinson, Alyssa Younan.
