On Tuesday the 9th of June, the Otago Secondary School Cross-Country Championships took place at Gladfield Golf Course.
John McGlashan was well represented at this event, with a sea of red singlets all over the golf course. The school performed exceptionally well, with stand out performances from Ruaidhri Brosnan, Ben Mitchell, Lochie Chittock and Oli Chignell.
All four boys medalled in their respective age groups, whilst Oli Chignell took out the Senior title for 2015. The McGlashan U14 team placed second in the teams race and the McGlashan Senior B team took out third. Both the McGlashan U15 A and McGlashan Senior A team were the top teams in Otago placing first.
The college has been able to develop many new cross-country runners this season and the boys thoroughly enjoyed running the event. The course was 3km for U14 boys, 4km for U15 and 16, and a lengthy 6km for senior students. Overall, this was a fantastic event for McGlashan and ideal preparation for the National Champs that will be held at the same venue on the 20th June.
