The successful Parkview PS Cross Country team.

 

Parkview PS has capped off a sporting period to remember by winning both the LNPSSA Cross Country Overall Points Score and Handicap trophy! For the students who contributed, it was their second attempt at their respective distances after Monday's Parkview Carnival. Quite a feat!

The LNPSSA Carnival was held last Friday at the Leeton No 1 Oval complex in perfect weather conditions. Parkview fielded a strong team who had all ran strong races at the PPS carnival to earn selection. All students navigated the course successfully and ran their own race which was demonstrated in the number of top ten finishers.

The LNPSSA Overall Points Score Trophy had long been a Leeton PS stranglehold who had won the trophy the previous 15 years!

Pleasingly, the following Parkview athletes were awarded Age Championship honours for crossing the line first in their age group:

Xavier Johnstone - 8/9 Years Boys 2 000m Age Champion

James Rourke - 11 Years Boys 3 000m Age Champion

Madeline Irvin - 12/13 Years Girls 3 000m Age Champion
