Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School (CSWCSS) have set their sights on causing an upset at the Division One inter-school cross-country championships on Monday. CSWCSS hope to sweep the boys' titles and clinch the overall championship at the annual event at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling. It has been dominated by La Salle College and Diocesan Boys' School (DBS) in recent years. Since CSWCSS installed a running track around the school playground four years ago, the students have been focusing more on athletics during physical education (PE) lessons. Following a gradual improvement in results, PE teacher Stephen Li Tak-sai said CSWCSS' cross-country team is now ready to knock their rivals off the top of the standings. 'We look good in all grades this year,' said Li. 'I am confident not only about retaining the Grade A title, but I also think we have a good chance to spring a surprise in Grade B and C. CSWCSS runners impressed in Grade A last year, placing second, fourth, sixth and eighth. The same boys will race on Monday, along with some new talent. Li said Mak Kwok-yuen and Tang Wai-kui can pick up points in Grade A. Both have the ability to win the race outright, he added. In Grade B, Li will look to Wong Yung-chu and Chan Chun-hong, both of whom impressed at this year's Watsons Junior Elite Athletic Championships. 'La Salle and DBS will be tough rivals though and no trophies will come easily. But being the overall champion is our big hope. Our best ever until now is fourth, which we achieved last year,' Li said. 'It really depends on the athletes' condition on the day. If they are at their best, then yes, I think we are good enough. We were very poor in Grade C last year, and this cost us the overall title.' Li admits the new athletics track has made a big difference to the students' performance. 'The students find it convenient and this encourages them to use the facility. And the after-school training we offer is always popular. We get 60 or 70 students showing up at six sessions, three days a week, morning and evening. It cost $55,000 to instal the track. It was worth the investment, definitely,' he said. Among the girls, Good Hope School and Sacred Heart Canossian College are tipped to upset long-time champions Heep Yunn School and Diocesan Girls' School.
