Four students tackle the best in state

On 14 July 2022, four Cobram AGS students travelled to Melbourne to take on the best runners in Victoria at the Schools Sports Victoria State Cross Country event.

Tennille Kautai (Year 6), Charlotte Woosnam (Year 8), Baden Riedell (Year 9) and James Hooper (Year 10) all competed in extremely trying conditions on the day which affected their ability to run at their best but they still gave it their all.

Charlotte in particular embodied our school pillar, community, sacrificing her own run to assist a competitor from another school who suffered a medical episode on the course. Charlotte sprinted to the nearest marshal to alert them so they could render assistance to the competitor. 

This was a great example of quick thinking and leadership in an extremely confronting situation. Well done for demonstrating such outstanding citizenship Charlotte.
