Matt Hauser (Yr 10) and Brooke Willis (Yr 12) went at the Australian Cross Country Championships in Launceston last  weekend. The individual races were held on Saturday and relays on Sunday. On a  cold, windy day with a very wet and muddy track, Matt ran in the 14/15yr boys 4km race with 72 competitors from every state and territory. He came second in a time of 13:34, winning a silver individual medal and two gold team medals for Queensland. Brooke ran in the Under 20 Women’s 6km race and came 17th  in a time of 24:28, out of 44 competitors.
In the relays Matt was the first runner in the 5 x 2000m 14/15yr boys relay. The QLD boys won gold! . Brooke ran in the 18/19 yr Women’s 5 x 2000m relay, where the QLD girls won the bronze medal.
Congratulations to both Matt and Brooke for these outstanding results!
