Appleby School students enjoyed outstanding success at the Waimea South Zone Cross Country Championships at Rabbit Island yesterday. All events were raced over 2km.

The Year 6 girls team produced a Wall of Fame worthy performance winning their teams event by a clear margin.

Amelia Clark (6th), Ava Knowles (8th), Abbi Clements (12th), Abbie Rolfe (13th), Lily Herd (15th) and Anna King (16th) rounded off an awesome performance with all girls finishing in the top half of the field.
