Nowra state cross country championships Sat. 23rd June.
It was a cold and sunny day - perfect for cross country. The Nowra course is well worth the travelling, and you can stop off in Fitzroy Falls for a half hour break to stretch your legs and see some spectacular scenery en route.
Our under 16 boys and under 18 girls got GOLD, our under 14 boys SILVER and our under 12 boys and 35+ women (with 3 mums of juniors) got BRONZE. The under 18 boys were a respectable 4th.
One Strider deserves a very special mention - Josh Phillips won an individual medal - a GOLD one - he is now under 14 boys NSW Cross country champion!!!!!!!! A first for any Junior Strider :) Well done Josh!!!!
