We had a brilliant trip to Nanyuki. The team was excited about the event, especially with it being a beautiful sunny morning.
After a brief warm-up and tactical team talk we were ready to go. The event started off with U9 girls, with Eber having a particularly strong run, finishing among the first of the Braeburn girls, with Alana 6th and Quinn 9th. Ironically Quinn lost to the Braeburn Nanyuki girl she helped when she had a stitch.
In the U9 boys Cruz and Ivai came 12th and 13th while in the U11 girls Angel was 12th. Unfortunately Lerato, Gaia and Nerice got lost for a few minutes before finding their way back on to the course and they finished very close together. We didn’t have any boys in the U11 age group.
Our U13 Girls were impressive, stuck to the plan and finished: Katanu 2nd, Amani 3rd, Kiana 5th and Sheryl 6th. Their performances resulted in 1st place in the girls U13 category. In the U13 boys Bryne was 2nd, narrowly losing after leading most of the way; Jacob came 5th.
Overall Braeburn School came 2nd, an impressive team result, particularly considering we had no runners to score top points in the U11 boys. Excellent job everyone!
