Andrews Cup Cross Country Results
On Monday 26 May, the Andrews Cup Cross Country was held at Ambiwerra Sports Fields, Corinda and an outstanding team effort saw the St Aidan’s Junior School Cross Country team place second in both the Aggregate and the Percentage. Particular mention must go to Isabelle Mortensen who won the 10 year age group and to our 10 Years Age Group collectively who also placed 2nd in their Year level. All girls are to be congratulated on their effort.
All team members are to be congratulated on their commitment leading into the competition and on the day of the competition. Training commenced in Week Two of Term One and the attendances and efforts have led to great individual and team results at the Andrews Cup. I would like to thank the parents who supported the runners at Ambiwerra – your encouragement was appreciated by all girls. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Cross Country Captain, Stella Brown for being such fantastic role model both at trainings and on the competition day. A further thank you must be extended to our Head Coach, Ms Murry, Ms Cairns, Mr Moseley, Libby Jacques and Loren Morrsinkhof for your continued support and commitment to the 2019 Cross Country Program.
