Melville Intermediate - Cross Country Recount
On Wednesday 5th August 2009 we went from our class to do the Cross Country. The Year 7 Girls were going first and everyone thought that India would win the race. The track was to go around the field then go to the High School then you go past the turf and then you go onto the Carter field and you will come around to the playground and then do it all again. At the start India was coming first but on the second lap Annalise was coming first by around 100 meters and she couldn't be caught. Then it was the Y7 Boys turn. I was a little bit scared and I thought that I was going to come about 20th. We did some warm up first and then Mr Day said ready steady go! and I was running my fastest. I was happy because I was coming third at the start but then it died down a bit on the Carter Field so I was coming seventh but when I saw Scott behind me I picked the pace up, so did Scott. Behind him was a big pack. Scott had ended up passing me so I had come 8th, so I was very proud of myself. Raukawa, Room 8, Melville Intermediate School.
