John McGlashan Boys (and spectators) braved the cold and wet weather at the recent Otago Secondary School Cross-Country event.
The Otago Secondary School Cross-Country Championships was held at Kaikorai Valley College on the 1st June. The Under-14 boys completed a 3km course whilst the Under-15 and Under-16 runner completed a 4km Course.
John McGlashan Boys once again showed their strength. Josh Hou won the Under-14 boys race and Grayson Westgate also put in a strong performance to finish fourth. Nathan Harrison finished third in the Under-15 event closely followed by Will Turner (5th) and Ben Lund (7th). In the Under-16 event Lucas Dickison, Ruaidhri Brosnan and Cade McRae ran strongly as a team finishing seventh, eight and ninth respectively.
These strong individual performances resulted in some excellent team placings for John McGlashan College. In the Under-14 age group, McGlashan finished first and third team. McGlashan also achieved a second and third placing in the Under-15 team event and a third placing in the Under-16 team event.
