CEDP runners shine at CSNSW CCC


Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta students have produced some impressive performances at the Catholic Schools NSW Cross Country Championships at Eastern Creek with St Madeleine's Primary, Kenthurst student Lachlan Dorahy the standout, winning the 10 boys MacKillop race.

Lachlan, who comfortably won the Parramatta Diocese Cross Country Championships in April, won a thrilling sprint to the line to claim top spot on the podium ahead of more than 50 competitors from Catholic schools around NSW.

Lachlan joined a number of CEDP students in qualifying for the NSWPSSA Cross Country Championships (primary) and NSW All Schools Cross Country Championships (secondary).

Emelia Muccino from St Michael's Primary Baulkham Hills came an impressive 3rd in the 11 Girls while in the secondary schools competition Kim Tran from Penola Catholic College Emu Plains was 3rd in the 12 boys.
