LAST Tuesday, about 60 students and three staff from Euroa Secondary College (ESC) travelled to the Southern Ranges Athletics competition in Epping.

The students had placed first in their events in the ESC Athletics Carnival, qualifying them to compete in this event.

The sun was shining brightly as we left Euroa, but once again the clouds and misty rain were apparent as we approached Melbourne.

But we were in luck on the day, with the clouds clearing and the day proving perfect for the competition.

In the long distance events, Julia Finnigan was once again in form, placing third in the 3000m, second in 1500m and first in 800m.

Ben Lewis also snatched first in the 800m, with Brandon Ebert placing second in his 800m and James Herring claiming second in both the 800m and 1500m.
