Thirty-two students recently represented Ayr High Hawks at the Interschool Cross Country Carnival held at Home Hill State High School. This event also saw the introduction of the Burdekin Secondary School Sport Cross Country Championship, in which our Hawks placed third.
There were a number of outstanding individual performances, with nine students finishing in the top four of their age group.
These students were:
Under 12 - Maddison Geitz (2nd), Amanda Brown (4th)
Under 13 - Charley Ruskin (3rd), Lachlan Mills (3rd), Travis Wilkins (4th)
Under 15 - Giselle LeFeuvre (2nd)
Under 16 - Joshua Power (4th)
Under 19 - Emma Donovan (3rd), Kelly Meinicke (3rd)
The top four in the 13-19 years age-group qualified for the Burdekin Cross Country Squad. These students will attend the North Queensland Cross Country Trials on Tuesday 28 May in Townsville. All students are to be congratulated on their performances and enthusiastic participation.
