Good times run in cross country fun

By Campaspe News

A TOTAL of 18 Rochester Primary School students has qualified for this week’s Campaspe Cross Country.

The students earned their spots after good results in the school’s annual cross country event for grades 3-6.

It was a beautiful afternoon on Wednesday and the effort and enthusiasm of the students was fantastic.

Nine and 10-year-old students ran 2km and 11 and 12-year-old students ran 3km.

First past the finish line was Cale James, who won the 10-year-old age group with a cracking time of 8:18.

The first girl past the post was Lily Reid, who won the 9-year-old girls age group with a time of 11:09.

Cadence Major was the first 10-year-old girl and Charlie Watson won the 9-year-old boys age group.

Jordan Town was the first to complete the 3km track for the second year in a row with a time of 12:47.

Maddie Howard was the first girl to finish the 3km track, winning the 11-year-old girls section with a time of 15:45.

Natalie Moon was the winner of the 12-year-old girls race and Trey White won the 11-year-old age group.

From this event, students who recorded times within the set standards then qualified for the Campaspe Cross Country, which is to be run this Friday in Echuca.
