Warwick High first overall in cross country

CROSS COUNTRY: Warwick State High School has recorded the most points in the Border Districts Cross Country at Scots PGC College.

The 13-19 years athletes competed on Wednesday on a course from Briggs and Dunning Ovals to parts of the school ground over distances of 3km to 6km.

Warwick High recorded 255 points to win from Scots PGC with 189 and Assumption College with 172. Clifton High was fourth on 119 points, Stanthorpe High on 114 and Goondiwindi High on 100.

In the Southern Downs trials for athletes 10-12 years, Central Downs zone had the most points, 234, and St Mary's finished with 151 points.

Scots PGC was third on 116 and Warwick West fourth on 95. The best of the small schools was Yangan on 38.

The top six Southern Downs athletes automatically qualify for the Darling Downs titles at Highfields on May 21.

The Border event for the older students was for a bit of fun as the schools with students 13-19 years make their own decisions about which athletes go to Darling Downs on May 21.

Average times per kilometre were recorded by organisers.

The closest battle for first was the 0.21 seconds per kilometre gap between 11 years winner Cooper Murray and runner-up Rory Farrell.

In 10 years, Zac Wheeldon from Central Downs zone was 0.28 of a second per kilometre ahead of runner-up Ryley Collins from St Mary's.
