Bay of Plenty Inter-School Cross Country
Tuesday, June 28, 2016
Woodlands School was the venue for the annual Bay of Plenty Inter-Schools Cross Country Champs. Over 400 competitors from throughout the Bay of Plenty congregated onto the rural setting in the outback of Opotiki.
Despite being hit by a belt of rain causing widespread flooding in the area, the course recovered well providing an awesome track and in turn produced some well earnt times.
This year’s event sees the last that Woodlands School will be used. The BOP cross country will be held in Rotorua for three years and then Tauranga for three years before it comes back to the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
Thank you to everyone that gives this event the reputable status it deserves, In particularly, to the local farmer and Woodlands School and their staff. Other notable acknowledgements go to Opotiki Primary for their PA System, Sport BOP Staff, and Marshals from Woodlands School, Whakatane High School and Tauranga youth.
