Northside Cross Country – 26 May 2021
Teacher: Miss Hammond
Cross Country Team: Maya McRae, Hope Seselja, Bella Murray-Clark, Natalie Swan, Katie White, Tahlia Rose, Lucas D’Amico, Darcy Brown, Zach Colson, Marcus Agnello, Lincoln Nicholson, Jordan Forka, Caelan Norris
On Wednesday the 23 of May 12 students ventured out to Stromlo Forest Park to compete in the Northside Schools Cross Country Carnival. All students competed tremendously, with many placing in the top 10 for their age group. It was great to see students supporting and encouraging one another across the course of the afternoon.
Not long after the Northside Carnival we were informed by SSACT that our Cross Country team won the Perpetual Shield for the North Region Cross Country Carnival. This is calculated by total points accumulated by competitors. SFX’s small team of 12 competitors accumulated 202 points, accumulating more points than any other North Region High School. This just goes to show you do not need a huge team to win an event such as this. Congratulations to all students who competed and good luck to runners progressing on the ACT Cross Country Carnival.
ACT Cross Country Runners: Maya McRae, Bella Murray-Clark, Katie White, Tahlia Rose, Lucas D’Amico, Zach Colson, Marcus Agnello, Lincoln Nicholson

With only a few hockey players in the team the boys picked up the game quickly and were very competitive not making it easy for their opponents. They displayed some excellent teamwork and determination across the day. A big shout out to Noah who put his body on the line to score the teams only goal on the day, way to go Noah!
Congratulations to the 7/8 Girls team who finished in second place on the day! The girls had some close games and should be very proud of their efforts. It was great to see the more experienced players on the day step and support those who had less experience, helping them learn the rules and tactics of the game. The girls displayed outstanding teamwork and sportsmanship making it a very enjoyable day out for all, thanks for a great day out girls!
