Special mention to two Year 9 students who ran very well against students who were mostly a year older than them: Teniqua Gomez had a great run, finishing 17th out of 59 in the inter girls race as our third counter, while Fin Croll came a very impressive eighth out of 64 in the inter boys.
All students ran superbly and the girls are now eagerly looking forward to the final.
