A record 10 primary students competed at the Regional Cross Country Championships held in Buderim as part of the Glasshouse District team.The competition is always very tough at this level and this year was no exception. The highest place getter was Rick Kombanie in the 13 year boys’ race where he placed 8th which was a fantastic effort. He ran a well judged race and worked his way through the field which was smaller than usual.Cassidy Ferris and Jacob Broderick were the highest placed Primary students both finishing in 13th place. Jacob, Declan and Nik had a real battle against each other in their race, with Nik leading early but Jacob came through to beat Declan and finished in 13th place with Declan in 17th place.
