Oliver braves blizzard

Congratulations to Oliver Naylor (Year 9) who represented Geelong College at the Victorian Interschools Cross Country Championships at Mt Buller over the weekend.

Oliver finished 19th in a time of 13mins and 18 seconds on a very challenging day that saw more than 30cm of snow fall on Mt Buller.

Due to high winds and extreme weather the course had to be moved to the village and all competitors found the conditions challenging.

In his first Interschools race Oliver toughed it out to race well, congratulations Oliver!

Emerson Facer (Year 8) also represented the College but was unable to finish the course, and Anna Naylor (Year 7) was too ill to compete.

It was great to have a few College representatives at the Cross Country Championships for the first time in many years. Hopefully we’ll see a few more next year!
