This week’s Cross Country meet was held at Lake Dewar, Myrniong. Athletes took the opportunity to run at the same venue that the upcoming Regional Championships will be held at.
After the heavy rain received the day before, the course was quite slippery underfoot requiring athletes to run cautiously.
The Under 6 athletes completed a 500m loop, with new athlete Imogen Borg running her fastest time to be the official winner in 3.09.93 mins.
The Under 7 & 8 athletes tackled the 1km course. Harrison Lovett, Under 7 was the standout performer winning in convincing form while Myah Estlick, Under 8 finished strongly to be declared the first girl across the finish line.
Nicholas Ide continued his winning form in the combined Under 9/10 1500m event. Oliver Quick continues to improve each week and will be one to look for in the coming weeks. Well done to Kaylee McDowell who recorded a pb and was the first girl home.
A well-executed race from Sam White saw him take the victory in the Under 11/12 2km race while Mackenzie Estlick recorded another win for the girls in a personal best time of 9.15.55mins.
The Open Age event, athletes completed 2 loops of a 1500m course. Elise Cook finished the 3km’s in a time of 14.19.57mins to take the win with Danielle Ide 20 seconds behind in 2nd place and Zane Rich in a pb time for 3rd place overall.
Next week’s Cross Country meet will be held at Lady Northcote Recreation Camp, Rowsley. Athletes should arrive just after 10am for a warm up and familiarisation of the course. The first race will start at 10.30am sharp.
