Junior Xterra 2018
We are so proud of each and every one of Applewood’s Junior Xterra Warrior of 2018! The Fed Health Xterra in Grabouw is one of the top sport events our entire town looks forward to each year. It’s such a well organised event and the prevailing sense of community is just wonderful to experience. Even more so for us at Applewood with so many of our pupils representing us in uniform at the Junior Xterra on Friday.
Since our school is so perfectly positioned in the picturesque countryside we encourage a broad spectrum of sports outside the traditional school sport spectrum of hockey, rugby and cricket. Therefore we also acknowledge and train in sports such as running, cycling or mountain biking and swimming. At the end of the day the benefits of physical activity (regardless through which sport it is) and the experience of sportsmanship is invaluable.
At the Xterra good sportsmanship was the order of the day and it was great to see the various age groups cheer each other on along the way. All our athletes did a superb job, crossing the finish line (some even with a last little sprint at the end) all in good spirit.
