St George Athletes Shine at Nowra XC 2019


A team of 24 athletes travelled down to Nowra on Saturday 22 June 2019  to take on the hills and the state’s best at the 2019 Athletics NSW State Cross Country Championships.

We had our most successful campaign in recent history, bringing home a phenomenal 6 GOLD, 4 SILVER and 4 BRONZE. More importantly however, every single athlete in the Red & White left everything out on the course and did themselves, their families and their club extremely proud.

(And thanks to Dave Carey for bringing a tent to make a Saints HQ, Nathan Breen for some great race calling and announcing, Greg Breen for supporting us all, and to the runners and family members who cheered people on course or at the finish line. Special mention to Paul Arthur for his humorous takeover of the teams medal presentation, although with comedy like that he deserves a bigger crowd.)
