Sunraysia Academy of Sport athletes excel at the SA State Cross Country Championships.
A small contingent of athletes from Mildura travelled to Adelaide to compete at the 2014 South Australian Little Athletics McDonalds State Cross Country Championships, which were held on Sunday 20th July.
In order to qualify for the Championships, athletes participated in the Mildura and District Little Athletics Cross Country Season which ran from the start of May through to the end of June. Approximately 40 athletes competed each week, running at different venues across Sunraysia.
SAS athletes Jayden Curtis, Jordan Stainer and Sheree Moore all ran exceptionally well with both Jayden and Sheree picking up place medals. Sheree continued her winning form after winning a gold medal for the last three years at this event.
The results were as follows:
Sheree Moore â€“ Gold U17 Girls
Jayden Curtis â€“ Silver U13 Boys
Jordan Stainer â€“ 4th U12 Boys
Sam Hayes â€“ 6th U11 Boys
Zach Stainer –Â 9th U10 Boys
The Academy would like to congratulate all athletes on their achievements. With many of the athletes continuing to train throughout the winter on a weekly basis the athletes have been rewarded with great times.
