The ECC Cross Country was run in Term 2 on a sunny Friday, providing perfect conditions for the runners. Unfortunately, due to the constant changing of COVID restrictions, the carnival was scaled-back and run as a nomination-only event. Students who nominated for the event performed well on the day and took on the challenging 3.3km course with vigour. For those participants that were new or forgot how hard the course is – they were well and truly reminded once they ran through the soft sand at the beginning of the course. This was reinforced by how tired the students (and staff) were coming down the final straight.
The Tassie Devil Award is based on the percentage of students from each House that complete the course. In 2022, Year 12 students who did not nominate in the run, took part in a Walk The Talk event, where they gained Tassie Devil points by walking laps around the soccer pitch and enjoying the fresh air with friends.
After an excellent morning of competition, Teresa was crowned Champion House and Lisieux ran away with the Tassie Devil Award. Well done to all students who participated in the Cross Country or Walk the Talk event on the day!
Below is a table of our Top 3 runners from each race:
A huge thank you to all the House Coordinators and Physical Education Department staff that came to school early to set up the course. These days are also not possible without the support and help from those staff members who completed a specific role on the day and embraced the event in such a positive manner. To the P & F, supplying runners with a delightful killer python as they crossed the finish line, your support is much appreciated.
Finally, to all the students who participated on the day, your enthusiasm and commitment for your House is what makes these events special. We hope to see the whole school involved again for a bigger and better Cross Country Carnival in 2023.
