Cross country victory to The Scots PGC College

CROSS COUNTRY: The Scots PGC College hosted the inaugural Queensland Combined Independent Schools (QCIS) Cross Country Carnival late last month and won the percentage trophy.

Thirteen Scots PGC students won QCIS individual championships.

More than 300 runners from Scots PGC, Downlands, Concordia, Toowoomba Anglican College and Preparatory School (TACAPS), Ambrose Treacy and Brigidine colleges participated across a series of challenging race routes developed on and around the Scots PGC grounds. The races, for boys and girls, ranged from 2km tracks for the U10s through to the 6km track for open boys.

The QCIS association, formed in 2015, has now completed both the junior and senior swimming carnivals, the Lindsay Mason Cricket Cup and the cross country carnival.

As the association comprises colleges with vastly different school populations, the percentage trophy is the most prestigious trophy.

Mary McKillop Catholic College won the senior swimming carnival (hosted by Downlands), Scots PGC junior swimming, TACAPS the Lindsay Mason Cricket Cup, and Scots PGC won the cross country.

ATC/Brigidine won the aggregate trophy for senior swimming, junior swimming and the cross country carnival.

Next up for the QCIS is the inaugural Rugby Carnival, with 16 games to be played on Saturday at the Scots PGC College.

The feature game between the Downlands 1st XV and Scots PGC 1st XV will take place on Briggs Oval at 1pm.

All rugby union games, for both boys and girls, commence at 9am.

In term 3, the QCIS athletics carnival will be hosted by ATC/Brigidine on September 13 at the UQ athletics complex.

SCOTS PGC CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONS: Eliana Jones, Alexandra Rickert, Riley Donaldson, Pip Wolsterholme, Amelia Meek, Bella Byrne, Jeremy Shepherd, Daniel Shepherd, Max Bolterhon, Dylan Marchant, Annie Thornton, Darcy Meek, Arnie Briel.
