Seasoned Keilor Cross Country Athletes are used to competing in the harshest of conditions at Cruden Farm, but this year we enjoyed some fabulous winter sunshine at the beautiful Lake Dewar at Myrniong.
The 2018 State Cross Country at Myrniong turned on the best winter weather we have had in some time. It was a beautiful location and appeared more like a festival with music playing, food trucks and lots of families enjoying the sunshine. The track was green and a gorgeous change of scenery for our athletes (one u14 athlete did comment how nice the scenery was on their run down the hill J).
All Keilor athletes performed spectacular as always, and cheered each other on, before and after their races. There certainly was some tough competition, but Keilor managed to run better than some of the School Sport Victoria Cross Country winners on the day, which is a great effort.
Special mention to the following athletes who managed to win an individual medal:
Mitchel Langborne – Gold in the boys u13
James Wilcox – Silver in the boys u14
Also a special mention to the following teams. State Cross Country combined athletes times and event position to determine first, second and third and congratulations to the following Keilor Teams:
3rd U11 Boys: Noah McMenamin 6th, Royce Goudy 24th, Campbell Scaife 34th
3rd U14 Girls: Talia Roshier 11th, Alyssa Di Martino 14th, Alicia Kisielewsk 29th
All of the Keilor Athletes performed spectacular against some great competition. Thank you also to all the parent helpers on the day. Cross Country Season is about to close so we are looking forward to seeing you all at Little Aths in September for the Summer Season.
