2016 Interhouse Cross-Country Carnival300x200-cross-country.jpg

Friday 29 April promised to be a day filled with anticipation, personal best times and passion for House spirit and participation. Although the skies threatened rain and storms, it could not deter a successful day.

This year saw a new challenge set to all competitors with a change in the course and also the course length. All students are to be commended on a fantastic day and their positive attitudes towards this event.

House points were hotly contested throughout the day with the leading house changing multiple times for both the Spirit Award and the Fr Gaetan Pereira Shield.

For the fourth consecutive year Koolyangarra were too strong and awarded the Fr Gaetan Pereira Shield. This was closely followed by Loreto.

Our Spirit award, which combined the participation points (for all students who ran the course in the allotted cut off times) and novelty event points was also a close competition. With only 3 points separating first and second, Loyola just snuck past Campion to take the Spirit Award.

Congratulations to both Koolyangarra and Loyola.

Overall, we saw some excellent results and times and all students should be extremely proud of their efforts, not only on the day, however, leading up to this event. The numbers at Cross-Country training has been very positive and this was reflected on the day.
