We began the Winter Season with 32 registered athletes. As the season progressed, a solid 15 to 23 athletes continued to compete—a good attendance for a small centre.
The parents of those participating were a great help in setting up and packing away. It was wonderful to see that our athletes had such good parental support.
A big thank you also goes to Michael Hodges who assisted with coaching during the season.
Well done to all the children that came to training night after night, ran up hills in the rain, through the bush and kept going. I am proud of you all.
Overall, it was the best cross-country season we have had as a centre for years.
