Excellent Race by Emerson Deverell

Year 13 student Emerson Deverell recently competed in the National Cross Country Championships and placed an impressive 6th in the Senior Girls' Race.

Held in Dunedin, the running course at Gladfield Golf Course was wet and challenging, and the competition was tough. Our students were up against the very best distance running talent in New Zealand, so for Emerson to secure a 6th placing is a fantastic achievement.

On top of this, Emerson has also been selected into the New Zealand team, to race in Australia in August.

Well done Emerson - the King's community is very proud of you!
