The four fastest students from our Zone Athletics team qualified into the Sydney East Region Carnival through. The four 16 year olds boys, coached by Head Teacher PDHPE, Mr Nick Liley had experienced a wave of ongoing success at the regional and state carnivals. Our Boys 16 years 4 x 100 metre relay team ran 2nd in a time of 47.37 seconds at the Sydney East Region Carnival. The training sessions conducted by Mr Liley had opened up the complexities that higher performance athletics demands. At training Scanlan said, ‘I didn’t think these relay changes were so complicated’ when Mr Liley explained the correct technique for changes. Mitchell said, ‘there is so much to remember, I thought you just had to run fast’. The boys were surprised and proud of their achievements and improvements in time as a result of the coaching the had received.
The Boys 16 years 4 x 100 metre relay team competed at the CHS State Athletics carnival advancing to the final and ran their hearts out finishing 4th in a time of 45.80 seconds.
Teri, the CHS State 200metre and 400 metre champion was was very appreciative of the efforts of the whole team.
We echo the appreciation of the boys and their parents and thank Mr Liley for his time and expertise.
