On a fine blustery day 7 Sacred Heart Cross Country runners travelled to Tauhara Park in Rototuna to compete in the Central Zone Cross Country. Our athletes were all in the Year 9 and Junior age group who ran in a single race. The girls fared well on the less hilly course than they had experienced at our College Cross Country. As well as competing individually the first three runners from each school earned points for the school teams event. Results were:

Year 9 Girls:
6th Chloe Peters (13.22)
8th Ayla-Rose Gee (13.51)
25th Coco Connolly (17.46)

Junior Girls:
2nd Lily Marlow (12.56)
4th Rejoice Nhemachena (13.05)
19th Jenni Oliver (15.29)
20th Sarah Healy (15.29)

Teams Event:
4th Year 9 team
2nd Junior girls

This was a very successful event for our athletes some of whom will now move onto the Waibop Secondary School Cross Country.
