State level Cross Country placegetter again!

Joshua competed in the 2010 Qld All Schools Cross Country championships (Qld athletics and Qld Running combined) at St Pauls School, Bald Hills last weekend. He competed in the 7yo comp.

Because he had came 2nd last year at this championship event, over the loudspeaker came the news "Joshua Hendry is back this year, he will be the one to watch after coming second here last year"...

After a horror start, where he was about 40th out of 60, he worked his way through the field into 4th or 5th, and then in the hill climb with 150m to go he moved int 3rd then 2nd. He didnt have enough petrol to catch 1st place but finished with a very impressive 2nd. Dad was bursting with pride.

No state teams are formed to race at the nationals until grade 4 though - darn.
