Wellington Girls’ College dominated the first of the cross country events of the year – the CSW Champs – being held at Harcourt Park, Upper Hutt.
In the Year 9 category, it was a brilliant run from Ava Sutherland who took out first place comfortably. Poppy Healy ran really well too and was placed 3rd. Together with the only other Year 9 runner from WGC, Rosa Stanley who placed 10th, these girls took out the 3-person team award. In the Under 16 division, WGC was strongly represented and once again we took out first place. Amy McHardy was 8 seconds ahead of 2nd place getter. Molly O’Sullivan was 4th, Kate McHardy 5th, Lucy Jurke 6th, Katelyn Sceats 8th and Lara Gasson 10th. These results meant WGC won both the 3-person team and 6-person team award.
The Senior team did well with the best result from Jessica Hughes who was placed 5th. Together with Olivia Pugh (8th) and Carly Smith (9th), the girls took out 2nd place in the 3-person team award.
Congratulations to all of the team!
