AUS NZ Schools Individual - Coles Bay Tasmania.

NZ shared the honours 2 apiece with Australia in the individual schools races. Following hard on the heels of the World Cup event, our top juniors put in some impressive performances in tricky, physical granite terrain. There were some big errors too, as the low visibility and humid conditions took their toll on several of the runners from both nations. With the 3 best times totalled in each grade, NZ won the Senior Boys and Junior Girls - Ed Cory-Wright and Danielle Goodall individual winners in these. Kayla Fairbairn won the Senior Girls title.

Combined with the Relays yesterday, the Kiwis take the overall title 5 grades to 2. Very impressive beating the Aussies on their home soil.

Next event is the Oceania Long Distance Race on Sunday, with a chance to watch the best in the World run in the World Cup Long on Saturday.
