Annual Cross-Country

Union High School’s learners enjoyed their annual inter-house cross-country meet this afternoon (Wednesday, 2 October).

The school is fortunate that our main sports facilities are bordered by beautiful surroundings that allow our cross-country runners easy access to a series of runs catering for all ages and abilities from our own doorstep.

This annual event, which is aimed at increasing participation in competitive sport, sees everyone taking part with a chance to win points for their House, in a competition that is both keenly contested but also fun.

All age groups ran separately and staff were impressed with the levels of enthusiasm, fitness and commitment to this event – all learners should be proud of their efforts.

After tallying all the points accrued by the respective athletes of Arnott House and Daly House during the recent inter-house cross-country event, Daly House emerged the winner with 88 points to Arnott’s 84.
