On Sunday 28 July Eumundi State School was represented by
four relay teams (two boys teams and two girls teams) that competed in the
annual King of the Mountain Primary School Relay event held in Pomona. Teams
were made up of four runners who each run a lap of approximately 700m around
Stan Topper Park (located at the base of the mountain).
Congratulations to all of the dedicated Eumundi students
who took part. There were a total of 24 girls teams and 28 boys teams competing
from all over the Sunshine Coast. Many thanks to each participant for all of
the training/preparation leading up to this annual event, as well as parents
for helping them attend on the day.
A stand out result was in the girls division, where one
of the Eumundi teams finished in first place winning convincingly by 25
seconds. This team was made up of Lexi S, Lucy O, Sophie J and Lily S. Our
other team of girls also finished very strongly, crossing the finish line in
7th place. Well done to Georgia B, Kiani B, Leila R and Eavan F. Our boys’
teams were also impressive finishing 7th (Jimi L, Zach H, Harper W and Ben B)
and 8th (Lui B, Rhys L, Willoughby S and Jack S) respectively. The level of
determination and sportsmanship on display by all runners in each of the races
was most outstanding and they should all be very proud of themselves!
Lastly, a huge thank you again to the Original Eumundi Markets for
sponsoring our four teams and supplying them each with a running shirt to make
them look the part during the race. Thanks also to Kita L and Sue J for taking
some great photos before, during and after the event. Thank you also to Rob L
for helping secure team numbers to shirts as well as Libby W who collected
entry fees, assisted in handing out team shirts, and making the last minute
dash to purchase some additional safety pins to help get team numbers on
shirts. Again, many thanks to all the parents and family members and friends
who were so supportive of our runners.
