Young guns ad­vance in cross coun­try run

Alpine Observer - - Classifieds - By ALEX CRAIG

THREE speedy stu­dents from the Upper Kiewa Val­ley have topped their age groups at the Upper Hume Di­vi­sion Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onships, held two weeks ago in Wodonga.

The zone meet­ing in­cluded about 30 schools from Wodonga, Kiewa and Upper Mur­ray ar­eas.

Ta­wonga Pri­mary School stu­dents Rosie Franzke ( 11 year old girls) and Alec Franzke (10 year old boys), and Carmela Perri ( 10 year old girls) from Mt Beauty Pri­mary School all took first po­si­tion in their age groups.

At the end of next month the trio will com­pete at the Regional Cham­pi­onships in Win­ton to find out if they are good enough for the state com­pe­ti­tions.

Ta­wonga Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal Kim Franzke said that all three had a good chance of suc­cess.

“Rosie and Alec ran in the state cham­pi­onships last year, and all three of them are ex­tremely keen and fo­cused,” she said.

“All three run five kilo­me­tres on Satur­day morn­ings as part of the Mt Beauty Parkrun, and all of them par­tic­i­pate in Lit­tle Athletics.”
