At the most recent GSV Championship competition, our girls ran in glorious sunshine around Bundoora Park. There was an admirable sense of team comradery and a tangible feeling of grit and determination amongst the Fintona team. It was most encouraging to see more than 50 students contribute to the teams effort. Mia Pope (Year 9) won the Intermediate Division 3 race and not far behind her, Olivia Johnson (Year 9) finished in 6th place from a field of 80 runners from the best GSV schools. Mia has been selected to join the representative GSV Cross Country team which places her in the top 10 runners out of 16,000 girls. Congratulations to both Mia and Olivia. We wish Mia well as she competes at the next event.
