Triathlon Championships (Issue 1 2018 Sport)

Written on the 1 March 2018

Sacred Heart College entered 14 teams and 16 individuals into the Secondary School Sport SA Individual and Teams' Triathlon championship held at the West Lakes Aquatic Reserve on Wednesday 21 February 2018.

Enthusiasm for this event was evident from the start as students demonstrated organisation and initiative, organising their teams and making sure they all had a swimmer, runner and cyclist. It was great to see so many girls and boys taking up the challenge of competing in the individual races, testing their endurance across three disciplines.

The triathlon teams were often comprised of students who had never completed a triathlon before, but who were talented at their craft eg cycling. The College is extremely proud of the way the boys and girls worked together, to their full potential, to create successful teams.

With so much success we were hopeful to win the overall medal for the school who collected the most points at the Team and Individual Triathlon Championships. We held our breath, breathing out when our College's name was called! It was a great honour to see the whole triathlon team collect the Sam White Trophy and share the joys of their collective achievement; back-to-back!

Thanks to all the parents who came and supported the students on the day. We would like to congratulate all the students on their fantastic effort - it was great to work in conjunction with the students. Please see the full list of results following.
