Coast kids excel at Zone Cross Country Trials

Zone Cross Country Trials

Congratulations to all participants who gave their best effort at the Gympie Zone and Cooloola District Cross Country Carnival last month. More Coast students than ever were selected to represent their schools on the day -perhaps in part something to do with Rainbow’s excellent Running Club?

PE teacher James Druitt commented that “Each runner gave their best effort and should be congratulated on their participation and school spirit.  It was great to see students who had already completed their run make an effort to get back to the side of the track and cheer on their mates in later races.” 

Held in Gympie, it was great to see the school spirit and students gaining excellent times. Four Cooloola Coast kids have made it to the Zone team for Cross Country and will represent Gympie at the Wide Bay carnival in Bundaberg: Hugh Gilmore (RBSS) and Kate Gilmore (Gympie High) placed 3rd, Jadelyn Carey (TCB) 4th and Eric Lawton (Gympie High) 5th in their age groups.

Well done everyone! Lots more photos are on the website and at school.
