Thirty-five students represented Ayr High recently at the Interschool Cross Country this year.  The 12 year old competitors competed first at the Burdekin District Cross Country (9 Years-12 Years) event held at the old Ayr Racecourse on Friday 5 May, with the 13-19 Years students competing on Tuesday 16 May on Burdekin Catholic High School’s cross country course.
There were a number of outstanding performances with thirteen students finishing in the top three of their age group.
