SIS Cross Country 2022

After being cancelled due to extreme weather conditions at the first attempt, the Sis Cross Country Carnival took place on Tuesday 26th July at Baxter Park. The conditions, whilst not extreme, were challenging – a wet course increasingly turned muddy as the day progressed.

14 SIS schools were competing in the combined Division A & B Carnival. Our team of around 70 students were in Division A and represented the school in impressive fashion. We changed our strategy this year, and rather than push students up age groups to fill gaps in the team; we wanted to support all students to run in their correct age group. Our runners gave their best, pushing themselves to their limits and made a positive contribution to our overall 6th place finish.

There were some outstanding individual performances on the day, including two race wins across the 12-race carnival:

Amelia Evenden, Year 11 – 1st place U/17
Imogen Tabacco, Year 10 – 1st place U/16
Benny McConnell, Year 12 – 3rd place U/21
Ted Meysztowicz, Year 10 – 4th place U/16
Alby Moorehouse, Year 7 – 5th place U/13
Orlando Clark, Year 8 – 5th place U/14
Harry Lawson, Year 11 – 8th place U/16
Rhett Clark, Year 12 – 10th place U/21

Special mention to Millie Evenden, who remains undefeated at SIS level, having won in 2018, 2019, (no race in 2020), 2021 and again this year. What an incredible effort!

Thanks also to Benny McConnell (team captain) for his performance and the work he put in with all the Boys’ teams helping them prepare on the day. To our Year 12 students who have been involved at this level with Cross Country across their six-year journey, thank you for your wonderful contribution and willingness to be involved during your final year.
