On Friday 31 May, the MMC Cross Country Team travelled to Ipswich to compete against our fellow CaSSSA members in the annual CaSSSA Cross Country Carnival.

Our girls were amazing and gave it everything they had, resulting in a brilliant 3rd place behind San Sisto College and the overall winners Stuartholme.

We bought home many pennants that day!

A big congratulations to Neeve Sutton and Elena Stephenson for placing 1st in their age groups and to Macy-Lee Smedley and Jessica Mahon for placing 3rd in their age groups.

The Team worked very hard this season at training and I thank them and their very supportive families for all the early mornings and effort. 

I would also like to acknowledge the team's sportswomanship on the day.  The girls cheered on and encouraged other schools both on and off the track, were very supportive of each other and were led confidently and encouragingly by their seniors and Cross Country Captain Kenlyn O'Brien-Webb.

CONGRATULTIONS Cross Country Team 2019 on a remarkable achievement and your outstanding commitment and sportswomanship.  We are very proud of you!

Continuing on our Cross Country success are the students that represented MMC at the recent Metropolitan North trials. 

Congratulations to Maddie Dickie, Jessica Mahon, Kenlyn O'Brien-Webb and Breanna Pitts and to Elena Stephenson on her brilliant 1st place ranking, Macy-Lee Smedley on 8th place and Neeve Sutton on 10th place.

Outstanding achievements from our girls both on and off the track again.  We would like to acknowledge Macy-Lee Smedley on her sportswomanship and how she kindly offered to jog the course with one of our girls who was unfamiliar with it.  Macy was amazing and a fantastic guide, as were all our girls that offered so much support to each other on the day.
