Victorian Schools Team Take It Up to the Rest

Congratulations to our Victorian Schools team who pulled out some fantastic results in the Australian Schools Champs in NSW, on what has been described as the toughest terrain for a Schools comp in 30 years.

Most notably, Sophie Taverna and Torren Arthur both placed third in the Junior comp!  With Milla Key 5th and Sophie Arthur 7th, and excellent results in the Sprint, the future looks very bright for our junior girls.  The junior boys also did a great job, with Callum White running in a plaster cast and still placing 11th!

Jensen Key was the best placed of our senior boys in 7th, followed closely by Mason Arthur in 9th, backing up from his great 5th place in the Sprint. The senior girls had a tougher day, but all team members stuck to the task and completed their courses under very challenging conditions.

Onto the Relays, and again the Junior Girls rose to the occasion to claim a silver medal, and enough points to give Victoria 4th place in the overall competition.  The Junior Boys were very unlucky, missing the bronze medal by 7 seconds.  The Senior Boys were also fourth but the margin to third was a little wider.

Congratulations to the team, coaches, parents and supporters – great job!
