SHC win SILVER at Cross-Country World Secondary Schools Champs


An incredible event in a fabulous city and a ‘beyond belief’ result for this fantastic team of six boys. Our Sacred Heart Cross-Country team win the SILVER medal at the World Cross Country Championships and give the best ever performance by a NZ team at this event. This is an outstanding achievement! These 6 boys were quite simply AWESOME and as a coach I could not be more proud of every single aspect of their planning, preparation and ultimately their performance. Well done boys, it has been a three year plan, a three year dream, and a performance that will be remembered for a very, very long time. It has been a pleasure to be there with you on the journey!! Kia kaha
Rhys Taucher, Coach
