2023 House Athletics Carnival Results

A thunderstorm with heavy rain greeted us first thing on the morning of our annual House Athletics Carnival. By 8.30am a team of staff were setting up at Landy Field in readiness for our students. Unfortunately, hurdles had to be cancelled and only students with spikes could enter the high jump due to a slippery track. The participation rate was pleasing and the lines for running races exceeded expectations. Throwing also proved popular and the 100m was compulsory for the junior and intermediate years. The student leaders did a terrific job encouraging students in their respective Houses to participate to gain valuable House points. The Year 12 students enjoyed their final Athletics Carnival running and jumping in various costumes. It was lovely to see so many brides running around the track!

There were 8 records broken on the day: Ida L (Year 11) 100 metres, 200 metres and 400 metres, Gracie N (Year 12) broke a 25-year-old Walk record, Leah B (Year 8) 100 and 200 metres, Adasha B (Year 12) Shotput and the Year 11 Lelia relay team. The Clonard Gift championship event had the top ten 100 metre runners for the day, Ida L (Year 11) won this event in the fastest time ever at Clonard.

Finian once again won the Championship.

Congratulations to all students on the day. Please see a full summary of results below.
