Wednesday in Week 1 saw Somerset’s second major sporting carnival of the year take place, a contest of endurance and speed, the Inter-House Cross Country Carnival. With races ranging from 3 to 6km for both boys and girls, it was a competitive afternoon filled with excitement regarding who would take home the crucial Arnison Cup points.
There was a good mixture of talent from each House, not just reflected in the Age Champions awards, but also in the relatively close point score among all five Houses. Starkey, champions of last year’s Carnival, have continued their reign by winning with just 155 points over Laver.
A massive thank you goes to the assistance of the teachers out on the course for the afternoon and the encouragement they give also received from parents alike. The current ranking for the Arnison Cup stands at Starkey leading the competition with 39 points, Laver the close second with 36 points, followed by Andrews (24), Franklin (21) and Veivers (15 points).
Up next, we have Founders' Day and the highly contested Athletics Carnival!
