SSV State Cross Country Championships

On Thursday July 18th, Greenvale Primary School Year 6 student Matthew, attended the ‘School Sport Victoria, State Cross Country Championships’ at Bundoora Park to compete in the 12 Year Old Boys, 3000m race.

Matthew has run through an outstanding Cross Country season, placing first at School, District and Division Cross Country events, smashing his personal best placing at the Regional Cross Country and proving to be a more than capable performer at the State Cross Country event.

In a race of approximately one-hundred competitors, Matthew placed 44th, putting him in the top fifty long distance runners for his age in Victoria. Matthew is running at an elite level and continues to rapidly improve his performance.

Congratulations on your amazing achievement this year.
