All-Schools Road Relay

On Saturday 20 May, McKinnon’s elite Cross-Country runners competed in the All-Schools Road Relay Championships at Albert Park Reserve.

The All-schools competition involves students from all private schools around Victoria and therefore the standard of runners is extremely high.

It is the first time McKinnon has entered teams in this competition and we left with our heads held high after a great experience racing against the state’s best runners.

Our Under 14 Boys team of Finn PaynterMatt DayJai Curran-Nicholls and Seamus O’Brien were our most successful team on the day, coming in 5th place behind the winning team from Haileybury College in the 4 x 2km event. The outstanding result saw the boys defeat teams from exclusive private schools including Wesley, Marcelin, Carey, Trinity, Brighton Grammar, St Kevins and Xavier.

We also had our Under 18 Boys team of Sam KristensenHarry MouzakisJason Clayton and Michael Koletsas come 9th in the 4 x 3km event. Jason with an outstanding time of 9:30 mins for the 3km track.

Our Senior Boys team of Skyler and Josh KahBraydon Ross and Will Ockenden came 10th in the Under 20 4 x 3km event. Will with an outstanding time of 9:17 mins for the 3km track.
