College Athletics Carnival
05.06.24
This year we just snuck in before the weekend’s rain!

A fantastic week of weather and a looming weekend forecast meant that a few options had to be put in place to accommodate the carnival. Fortunately, the weather held off and we were able to run the carnival in its entirety.

The overnight cloud cover meant we arrived with dry grounds for the start of our day. We kicked off with the 1500 m races, followed by the 200 m races as we awaited our student arrivals. Age groups then rotated through three field events before we returned to the velodrome for the 400 m races. Age groups then returned to finish the final three rotations before we watched the 100 m finals and the relay races, as the school came together in their house groups.

Highlights for the day included:

  • The excellent behaviour and overall participation of the students in attendance. It was great to see them embrace the community spirit of the carnival and enjoy having a race and a laugh with their mates.
  • Lincoln Markulin in the Opens Javelin throwing a PB of 53 m to break the College record.
  • We crowned the following Age Champions:
    • Under 12:  Liam Van Eck  –  Doolan
    • Under 13:  Ambrose Plunkett – Shanahan
    • Under 14:  Archie Lawson – Spillane
    • Under 15:  Cruz Tucker – Spillane
    • Under 16:  Zach Sammut – Doolan
    • Opens:      Cooper Jones – Knights
  • In one of the closest carnivals in recent memory, Spillane was crowned the Overall House Champion on 882 points. They were followed closely by Knights on 800, Doolan on 727 and Shanahan on 654.

Boys who have been successful in making the College team will be notified in the coming weeks of their events in preparation for the CSBB Athletics Carnival in Week 7, Term 3.

A big thank you must go out to all staff who helped in their varied roles to make the day a success.
