Stu­dents line up for an­nual tri­als

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

STARTERS’ guns have fired across the North Bur­nett for the an­nual cross-coun­try school races.

Bur­nett State Col­lege PE teacher Nic Banks said the aim for all stu­dents was par­tic­i­pa­tion.

While stu­dents were re­quired to com­plete the dis­tance for their age group, the set time should be suf­fi­cient for those who chose to walk the dis­tance.

North Bur­nett man­ager for 10–12 years age group Caro­line Holmes, of Biggen­den, said the first five placeget­ters in each of the 10 to 19 years age groups from Biggen­den, Gayn­dah, Mun­dub­bera, Eidsvold and Monto will com­pete for a place in the North Bur­nett tri­als.

“From these tri­als a squad will be selected to com­pete at the Wide Bay ti­tles on May 29,” she said.

Michelle Geary, con­venor for the North Bur­nett and Wide Bay tri­als, said both cour­ses would be held at Gayn­dah Golf Course.

For Coal­stoun Lakes’ Max Cor­field his com­bined train­ing with the Biggen­den Bar­racu­das and the Cen­tral Bur­nett Brumbies added to his fit­ness.

“I like chas­ing Matty (fel­low stu­dent Matthew Seabrook) but he sure left me be­hind on the day.

“It was a rather hot day and I was de­ter­mined the kid be­hind me wasn’t go­ing to beat me,” he said.

Matthew breezed in first place fol­lowed by Max and two sec­onds be­hind was Jaiden Jeynes.

Now selected in the North Bur­nett team, Max will look at train­ing up and down Bellert’s Rd hill while his mum, Kim, walks.

Max has also been selected in the North Bur­net AFL and U-11 rugby teams.
