2019 ACC Cross Country Results and Marcellin Sports News

Congratulations to all competitors in this year’s ACC Cross Country Carnival. The whole team performed brilliantly to finish 4th out of 74 Schools. Each runner represented the College proudly and pushed themselves and each other to the limit.

Big thank you to Head Coach Ben Chamberlain for all of his work in best preparing the team throughout the rigorous training program as well as his expert technical guidance on the day. Congratulations to Sacred Heart who were the overall winners.

Special mention to William Barrett-Lennard (Yr 10) who was our first Inclusive runner to compete. Will finished 4th in his classification.

Although we had many outstanding individual efforts, it was the consistency and depth of effort across all age groups which gave us such a pleasing and positive outcome.

·        Riley Somers (Yr 8 Boys) 10th
