Catholic Co-educational Athletics Carnival
Earlier this term, Sacred Heart College Middle and Senior Campus' competed in the Catholic Co-educational Athletics Carnival held at SA Athletics Stadium in the Open B Grade. Sacred Heart performed particularly strong at this event, winning 3 of the 4 shields on offer. The athletes were nervous as the bus approached SA Athletics Stadium and that familiar smell of the athletics track became prominent. The students remained positive and optimistic as they warmed up in preparation for a packed day of back to back events.
There were many outstanding individual performances, particularly over the 100m, 200m and 400m, which gave our athletics team much confidence at the commencement of the 4x100m Relay. The College took out the U14 Boys, U15 Boys and U20 Boys 4 x 100m relay. Particular mention must go to Lachlan Scannell and Ed Faulkner who each broke a long standing record on the day. Lachlan's record was set in the 800m in a time of 2:15.32 and Ed's record was in the 1500m in a time of 4:28.11s.
The following students achieved a top three finish in the following events:
