SACPSSA Athletics Carnival (Issue 4 2018) Sports
Written on the 5 July 2018
On Monday 18 June, both the Middle School and Marymount Campus sent a large team of athletes to compete at the SACPSSA Athletics Carnival. The squad competed in the highly prestigious Section 1 against a strong field of students from other Primary schools. All of our students should be commended on their fantastic achievements on the day.
All athletes from the Middle School performed exceptionally well, with many placing in their individual events. For the first time the Middle School entered an athlete into the Open (U/13) Pentathlon, the prestigious event to decide the most accomplished athlete in South Australian Catholic Primary Schools. Lucas Camporeale (Year 6) performed superbly against the older boys winning the 100m, long jump and placing in the hurdles, 800m and shot put. These excellent results saw Lucas crowned the SACPSSA 2018 Open Pentathlon Champion. All boys are to be commended for their wonderful performances and overall behaviour on the day. Special thanks to Joe McKinnon and Brandon Smith (Year 9) for being officials, as we have come to expect, both boys were wonderful ambassadors for the College.
The Marymount Campus girls also performed brilliantly with first place ribbons awarded to several of our students. Rylee Carne was the U13 Age Champion after winning the 100m, 200m and 400m. The U13 girls also won the 100m relay, the final event for the day. Thank you to our Year 8/9 students Nellie Curkpatrick, Lucy Abbott, Chelsea Swann, Mercedes Tierney, Mia Rienets, Eloise Merchant and Taya Howden for being excellent officials on the day.
As this is a Primary School event, it will be the final time SHC is represented at a SACPSSA Athletics Carnival. Over many years, the students have thoroughly enjoyed this Carnival and the students represented the College so well for the final time.
