Cross Country Carnival
The annual DLS Cross Country Carnival was held on Monday August 8 at TH King Reserve with a 3km course comprising of gravel, asphalt and grass surfaces. The weather was kind to the competitors on the day as the boys ploughed through plenty of mud, particularly at the start and finish of the race.
Each participant from Primary – Year 10 represented their homeroom both enthusiastically and determinedly.
The team results for 2011 were as follows:
- Year 7 – Jerome
- Year 8 – Benilde
- Year 9 – Miguel
- Year 10 – Benilde and Vincent
The Joint Cross Country Champions for 2011 are Benilde and Vincent!
