Tweed District Cross Country
Last Friday our courageous long distance runners competed at the District Cross Country in perfect conditions at Kingscliff.
The 8 and 9 year olds got us off to a great start with Gianna showing the South Tweed Spirit and great determination. She was tripped at the beginning of the race and wasted no time in catching up to the pack and putting in a strong performance.
Tashahn, Tanaya and Mathew placed 6th, 7th and 6th respectively to gain selection in the District Team and will be competing at the Zone carnival later this term at Murwillumbah.
Other strong performers included Madison, Chantal, Jyungarah, Nakeisha, Jasmin and Matthew.
The highlight of the day came in the dying minutes of the carnival. In the 12 Year Old Boys Race, Jake was joined by an army of Gold and Maroon uniforms as he crossed the line in emphatic fashion. It was fantastic to see all of our runners support each other and put in 100%.
THSPS can be extremely proud of the competitors we sent on Friday. Their attitude, behaviour and effort were outstanding.
A huge thanks to Fiona Brooks who remembered to take the ribbons and medallions and also to all of our parents who provided transport. Leonie, Cass, Crystal, Jo, Don, Wendy, Kim, Fiona, Bec, Gina, Brett and Robyn Sauer.
