Mitchell house wins cross country

AFTER eight years behind Mt Sturt, Mitchell house came through with the goods winning the cross country this week.

Yangan State School principal Ian Rathmell said everyone put in a great effort right down to the last race.

“We have been training over the past seven weeks, and it helps for those students who want to go on to Southern Downs,” Mr Rathmell said.

The day is all about fun, which the school has titled as a fun run, and each pupil is sponsored in an effort to raise money for new sport equipment.

There were six races on the day with divisions for 11-to-13-year-olds (3km), nine-to-10-year-olds, and the younger students who took part in a fun obstacle race.

Year 1 pupils Adrienne Hawes and Lauren Hutchinson enjoyed their first cross country event and said they found the run very easy.

“We had so much fun,” Lauren said.

Angus Croft and Meg Eastwell both won their last cross country at Yangan State School after a tremendous effort on the 3km course.
