Cannon Hill Anglican College (CHAC) was thrilled to take out the annual TAS Cross-country top-division aggregate trophy, in May 2011, to complement three sporting premierships won already this year.

Beating stiff competition in the TAS (The Associated Schools) event, CHAC celebrated its inaugural win of the aggregate trophy. The runners were keen to show their fighting spirit and to improve on their fourth position from the previous year's event.

Once racing was underway, it was clear that CHAC rose to the challenge, with some outstanding individual performances, and team members which pushed that bit harder to gain one or two extra places.

"The word was out amongst the coaches, when going into the last two races, that CHAC was leading the overall Carnival by a very small margin," said Cross-country Coordinator, Mr Russell Greer. "Some real gutsy running by the U16s and Open boys was required to maintain the lead – and fortunately they delivered.

"The effort, enthusiasm, spirit and determination of the CHAC students was outstanding. I can honestly say that, in 20 years of coaching, I have never been more proud of a group of students."

The win augments a premiership title in Boys' Volleyball, and two premierships in Girls' Tennis.

The teams look forward to defending their titles in 2012.
