The Lachlan PSSA Cross Country trials were held at the Forbes Racecourse on Monday with a strong turn-out of students from across the region, including Parkes primary schools.
Winners on the day were guaranteed a spot in the Western Trials on Wednesday, 9th June at Geurie with the top six making it through. Parkes East Primary School had seven athletes qualify for the Western Trials. From there the winners proceed to the State PSSA titles on 16th July to battle it out against the top junior distance runners in the state.
