2015 National Cross Country Championships at Moonee Valley Racecourse
02 Sep 2015
On Saturday 29 August Ruyton’s Under 18 team competed with distinction in the School Teams Event at the National Cross Country Championship at Moonee Valley racecourse.
Paris P (21st), Sophie M (73rd), Ella W (82nd), Jessica H (84th), Eleanor P (85th) and Hannah W (89th) battled the cold, wet and windy conditions of Moonee Valley to finish a very respectable third place overall in the National Schools Teams Competition.
It should be remembered that the team of six girls have managed to combine a GSV Track and Field season with a National Cross Country preparation over the past two months. In the Under 14 National Championship, Charlotte W capped off another successful season with 25th place overall in a field of 65.
