Junior School Sport News Cross-Country Friday 30 April saw another perfect day for the running of the Colour Cross-Country Carnival. This year was the first time we have run the Carnival at the start of the Cross-Country Season and therefore was the first of our five runs which contribute to the age championship. Due to this fact, the day simply became about participating and disclosing the 2010 Cross-Country Colour Team Champions. After many years in Cross-Country wilderness the Red Team won the Carnival, but the overall success of the afternoon was based on the level of enthusiasm and involvement from all the Junior School boys. The CIC Cross-Country season is in full swing with the Junior Squad fortunate enough this season to again be able to utilize the army barracks for our training sessions and Friday afternoon time trials which are all aimed at preparing the boys for the CIC Championships. At this stage of the season, we have been extremely happy with the level of interest from our runners and their application to training is exceptional. With the CIC Championships occurring on June 2 the intensity at training is increasing and it’s been pleasing to see our aspiring Cross-Country runners meet the challenges they have been confronted with.

Training Times: Monday & Wednesday Morning: 7.30am – 8.20am

north-West District Cross-Country On Tuesday 5 May we had the top 3 cross-country runners in each age group represent the College at the North-West District Cross-Country Championships with some outstanding results. From the twelve runners who competed, seven were successful in progressing through to the Met North Championships at Bald Hills on June 1. This is an amazing result given 21 schools from the district competed, and in each age group it was only the Top 10 selected to represent the NorthWest District at the Met North Champs. Well done to Nick Houlahan, Tom Carroll, Jackson Courtney, Calum Mackay, Alex Darwin, Louie Garrone and Ryley French who were placed in the top 10 of their respective age groups. Well done boys and hopefully we can improve on our times and be ultra competitive at the CIC Championships on June 2.

Individual Achievements Congratulations to the following boys who achieved outstanding results outside the College in different sports; Harrison McGovern 8D and Nicholas McGovern 6R were members of the Pacer sailing boat "IT" team, which won the Qld Open Team Sailing Championships held on Moreton Bay on 10/11th April 2010. Well done boys. Jordan Cabot 7G and Max Hewett 7R both made the Met North AFL team. Congratulations Jordan and Max. Campbell Mowle 5R was awarded a 1st Dan Black Belt at his Tai Kwando grading - not a bad achievement for a 9 year old.
