2013 House Cross Country

On Friday 26 July Salesian College Chadstone held its annual house Cross Country Carnival. The cold morning started off with our Year 9 race comprised 3 laps of the physically demanding circuit of the Mannix campus. After 2.8 kilometres of determined running, Jeremy Seneviratne finished victorious followed by Josh Knight and Delarno Pharoe.

The year 10 race was up next running the same course and was taken out by Casey Henderson who was followed by John Valles and Matthew Hennessey. The year 7s and 8s were up next and over nearly 200 participants were ready to face the daunting task of the 2013 Cross Country. The top Year 7 placing’s were Chistian Michailidis followed by Alex Leigh then Kyle Gordon. The Year 8 race was taken out by none other than Peter Sio followed by Christian Theoharous and Steven Kragolou.

As it came time for the Senior race (thanks to great help from the PE staff), everything was running on time and according to plan. The Senior victor was Joseph Choundary followed by Year 11 Hayden Colgrave and Mason Ansell.

Everyone who participated was able to score points for their houses and with fantastic numbers in all races we were able to have an extremely close finish for the cup. Our overall winners were Collinson with 337 points followed by Moroney on 334 then Annecy on 309 with Savio finishing 4th by 1 point on 308.

A huge thanks to all the staff and student helpers who came across to help by standing on checkpoints, taking results and general supervision, the carnival was a great success.
