On 1st May all students from Coonabarabran High assembled at the Racecourse to take part in the Annual Cross Country. The cool conditions looked good for some fast times as the uncharacteristic warm days of the past few weeks had mellowed slightly leaving a slightly overcast day for the run. It is always a surprise to see how fast the first runners make it around the track and their training in PE classes last term helped them tackle the course with ease. The following were the age champions;
|12||Ellah Hanney||Dustyn Owers|
|13||Kayla Smith||Kurt Rutter|
|14||Alex Letts||Nash Walker|
|15||Amarlee Vallette||Matt Wood|
|16||Claudia Eastburn||Harrison Willoughby|
|17||Octavia Whale||Connor Hughes|
The top 4 students in each age group along with these winners are eligible to represent Coonabarabran High at the North West Regional Cross Country at Mullaley on 14th June. The house points were Tibuc 214, Mopra 188, Timor 185 and Nandi 179.
On the last day of term one Bailey Milford, Matilda Chapman, Keely Milford and Harrison Milford travelled over to Tamworth to play in the North West Golf Trials. It has been a few years since Coonabarabran High has had such a strong presence at the trials which is great for the sport in Coonabarabran. The students were all paired off and took to the course to do their best and at the end of the day all four students were selected to represent North West at the Combined High Schools Golf Championships. This is a fantastic result especially as Harrison is only in year 7 and we wish them well in Yamba on 24th to 28th June at the State titles.
