An enormous congratulations go to our St Catherine's Zone 2 Cross Country team members, for their amazing individual and overall results at the Carnival held on Thursday 30 May. The Carnival was held at Villanova College Sports Fields in Tingalpa, with over 1200 students competing from 24 Zone 2 Catholic Primary Schools on the day.
A team of 50 athletes were selected to represent St Catherine's Primary School at the Zone 2 Catholic Primary Schools Cross Country Carnival. The team was based on the first five placegetters in the 8/9/10/11/12 years boys and girls events from our Term 1 - Interhouse St Catherine's School Cross Country Carnival. Our athletes have been training every Tuesday morning with Mrs Demetriou and a number of school staff since the School Cross Country Carnival last term, and through a lot of hard work and tremendous effort have earn themselves -1st place overall Aggregate Champions in Division 1 - AMAZING effort especially as we were using five reserves in various age divisions to replace our sick, injured and unable to attend students. A great effort from those five students that were called in to replace others with little notice…wonderful sportsmanship!
It is important to recognise that all the athletes who competed last Thursday significantly contributed to the overall result, as points are allocated to the athletes on a positional basis. Many runners placed in the top 15 which is a substantial achievement considering there are 45 students competing from 9 different (large) schools in each age group in Division 1. Phenomenal effort as our St Catherine's team were 300 points clear of the nearest rivals !!!
