WA 2019 State Long Course Cross Country championships

Melville were well represented on Sunday in the Athletics WA 2019 State Long Course Cross Country championships just held at a wet Perry Lakes venue. Pictured are Angus McArthur who as a nine year old made a big jump to firstly run and then place highly in the U 14 boys 4k race. Vanessa Miller our female distance specialist, ran hard and earned a silver medal in the U18 Girls race.
Raynor Keane was first across the line in the U20 Para 4k event. He won gold by scoring the highest percentage after the officials allocated each athlete their percentages using the Multi Disciplinary Scoring table. This is a comparison table and is used to fairly rate athletes with different disabilities but who compete all together in a Para athletics event

Each of the pictured runners have been training regularly with the Melville Centre crosscountry Group at Piney Lakes. I commend them on the terrific work ethic they have each shown this season
Well done also to those other Melville competitors who also ran well and completed their events.
