On 18 September, a select group of students from Years 7-12 headed up to Perth to represent the College at the D Division ACC Athletics Carnival. Spectacular weather provided perfect conditions for explosive performances and personal bests on the ‘tartan’.
It was a fantastic trip and the students from St Mary MacKillop should be extremely proud of their efforts. Our athletes were competitive throughout all of their selected events, often displaying a very high-level of sportsmanship before, during and after their events. There was plenty of success on both the track and field from our athletes and the results of these ‘gems’ from our highlight reel are listed in the table below. I hope that all students involved enjoyed the ACC athletics carnival, as it was an absolute pleasure to take you all down to compete and enjoy the experience. Especially some of the performances singing “Horses” on the Year 7/8 bus on the return trip.
I would like to also thank the staff who assisted with the facilitation of training, organisation and managing the events for students on the day, including Andy Culnane, Paul Culnane, Ben Horrocks, Paul Northover, Mark Taylor, Amy Hammond, Lauren Mirco, Stephanie Potts, Cassandra Lauro, Steve Crenfeldt and Ingrid May.
