Cross Country

Term 1 meet results

On Tuesday 22 March, Grammar girls competed in their first lead-up meet for the season hosted by Brisbane State High School. Although our numbers were low, the girls that competed showed tremendous athleticism and sportsmanship and enjoyed the first race of the season. As Coach, Mr Tim Franklin, tells the girls: ‘racing is the best form of training’.

It was great to see the girls outside their comfort zone and pushing their limits.

Below is a list of the girls who placed in the top five of their age group, and a list of all results and photos can be found on the Cross Country page on Minerva.
