A Balmy Day for Cross Country

« 1 of 18 »

Rehoboth’s first season in the ACC continued on Thursday 1 June 2017 with the Interschool Cross Country Competition at Perry Lakes in the city. Unfortunately our Year 11-12 students couldn’t take part due to exams, but nevertheless 48 Year 7-10 students attended the competition. It was more like the first day of summer than winter, as God blessed us with superb weather for running around in His beautiful creation.

We had more than 6500 athletes participating in the Cross Country course as 67 of the 78 ACC schools entered on the day. Girls were given a 3km course to run and boys a 4km course.

The day started off with the under 13 Girls (mostly Year 7’s). Rehoboth had 6 girls entered in this race, which saw 472 athletes at the starting line for a 3km run on the oval and through bush land at Perry Lakes. Kayla Bongers came 32nd with a time of 12:01.79 and did the best in this race for Rehoboth (39th out of 58 teams). Other highlights in the Girls division saw Tori Moss coming in 13th place at a time of 11:28.74 out of more than 450 under 14 Girls, and Rehoboth’s under 14 Girls 27th out of 54 Girl teams on the day.

Highlights in the boy’s division came in the under 16 Boys division and included Manfred Kelly with a time of 15:42.67 for a 4km run, therefore under 4min/km, well done Manfred! Armand Pretorius also did really well in the OPEN division with a time of 15:55.21, therefore 3.58min/km, also under 4min/km; well done.

In fact, Rehoboth had 1 girl and 3 boys who could run 3km in under 4min/km; very impressive!
