ISD Cross Country Champions

24 May 2024

The ISD Cross Country Carnival was held on Monday May 20th and was a true triumph for Glenaeon’s competitors. Races started with the older age groups, Under 17’s and 16’s where our senior runners led the way and set the tone for a fantastic day. Isaac L. won 17 Boys despite running up an age group and 16 Girls Indy M.J., Catina C. and Ciara H. all placed well.
Our 16 Boys managed to take all top 5 places with Ruben S., Finn P., Artie C., Felix P. and Will T..
15 Girls also took all top 5 positions with Grace and Ava F., Emily M., Amelie B. and Aleah K. Nina S. and Maya H. won their age categories and Finn C., Leon B. and Bloom S. ran outstandingly in their very tightly fought age divisions. All of our 50 racers gave their all and in a sport where the challenges are both physical and mental, every member of our team showed great fitness and fortitude.
Whilst the many wonderful individual performances are highlights – the true highlight of the day was the ISD naming the perpetual trophy for the winning school in honour of Jonas. The shield presented to the winning school will forever be known as the Jonas Stoebe Memorial Trophy and that motivation was clear. Our Glenaeon team were never headed and won the shield in emphatic fashion. A proud moment for our runners and our school overall.
