Miranda State Cross Country Relays 02/06/2012
We had 10 teams of four in these relays on a wet, windy and wonderful Saturday. Under 12s and under 14s run 2K each and the rest run 3K. There were as many as 16 teams in some races, so a LOT of competition. We won three sets of GOLD medals: under 12 boys, under 14 boys and under 16 boys, and two sets of BRONZE medals: under 12 girls and under 18 girls. Our other 5 teams ran very well and scored a lot of points for the club.
The sight of the day was Lachlan Cooper crossing the timing mat 1st overall in the 2K race for the under 14 boys, after Josh Phillips led the race on first leg most of the way. Unfortunately noone has provided me with a photo of that yet!!!
See below for photos of the under 16 boys - winning gold every race so far this winter season!
