Riverview cross-country athletes break records

Gisele Grimm, Evie Ralfe and Megan de Zwart.

Riverview Prep athletes enjoyed an early-morning run through the cane fields on November 1. The school hosted its annual interhouse cross-country event that saw dozens of Hornbills and Rollers compete for house honours.

This was the school’s last big sports event before pupils hit the books for their year-end exams. They enjoyed this last chance to stretch their legs and have fun on the sports grounds.

The course comprised a 2km race for grade one to four pupils and a 3km for the grade five to seven classes, which traversed the school grounds and a neighbouring farm.

The Hornbills won the event and several athletes broke records.

Shelley Cloete broke the record for the 2km girls u/8 in a time of 10:35, Libby Ralfe the 2km u/9 girls with 09:56 and Sophia Clarke for 2km u/10 girls in 09:41.

Among the boys, Andrew Faria broke the record in the 2km u/7in a time of 10:07 and Nick de Zwart the 2km u/9 record in 08:15.
