On Thursday 3rd September, our Year 7 girls’ relay team represented our school at the prestigious State Athletics Carnival (NSWCHS). This was held at the Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre, Homebush. Our Year 7 girls’ team ran their hearts out in the 4 x 100m Relay and narrowly missed the final by 0.02 of a second. After the relay, team member Celeste said “We’ll go back to the drawing board, do our training, and we will not miss the final next year”.
The girls were wonderful representatives for the school and showed great determination during the race, as well as true sportsmanship in the face of such a narrow defeat.
Congratulations to our 12 years relay team: Celeste Walker, Aishlin Walker, Isabelle Slack-Smith, Jorja Paardekooper, and Amelia Holland. We are very proud of you.
