Coonabarabran High School hosted a netball Gala Day on Monday 17 June against Wee Waa High School and Walgett High School. The first game was a fast and furious game between Wee Waa and Walgett. The Walgett team played a high standard of netball which resulted in Walgett being the victorious team. The second game of the day saw Coonabarabran play against Walgett. All the Coonabarabran team played fantastic netball. They combined well as a team and played with amazing talent and great sportsmanship. Coonabarabran High School were the well-deserved winners on the day. This means we progress to the next round, to be played against either Quirindi High School or Gunnedah High School.
On Friday the 14 June, 29 Coonabarabran High students set of for the Annual North West Cross Country. This year there was a change of venue and instead of heading to Coolah we were off to Mullaley. The students were all keen to take a look at the course on the walk through and most approved, as it did not have a “Heartbreak Hill,” as the Coolah course has. Coonabarabran High had an excellent year, with all students achieving beyond their means and 11 runners qualifying for the CHS Titles in Sydney on 26 July. They are:
1st Harry Willoughby
3rd Jacob Baker, Claudia Eastburn, Octavia Whale
4th Dustyn Owers, Charlie Selmes
5th Darcy Weatherall, Connor Hughes
6th Callum Wham, Rachael Evans, Luke Bonello
We wish them all the best at State.
The Annual Coonabarabran High Athletics carnival was held on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 June in glorious sunny winter conditions. The students who participated were full of positive energy, urging each other on to do their best for their house.
