On Thursday 10 August, the Junior School Athletics Team competed in the APS Athletics Meet at Somerset College. The team was led by captains Luke Shirley and Kartier Marjanovic in the team warm up and stretch before the first event, being the 800m.

It was a big day for all involved and our athletes were pushed to their limits, with many competing in five or more individual events. We had many individual successes on the day, with a number of students qualifying through to the South Coast Track and Field Regional Trials which is being held on the 5th and 6th of September at Griffith University.

In the 10 year old Female division, Rio Burns picked up 3rd overall. In the 11 year old Female division, Kartier Marjanovic came 2nd and Rhea Dawson 3rd, and in the 12 year old Male division, Kade Reynoldson was the overall Age Champion.

In the team category, Somerset came 2nd overall in the 9 year old Males, 1st place in the 10 year old Females, 2nd place in the 11 year old Females and 3rd place in the 12 year old Male division.

Somerset College came 5th place overall. The team should be extremely proud of their achievements and will no doubt build on this success in 2018.

A special thank you must go out to all coaches for the early morning sessions, in preparation for the carnival, especially Miss Oppermann, Mrs. Nugent, Mr. Cates and Mrs. Grocott along with Chris, Phil, Kirsty and Eddie.

Thank you to all of the parents who came and supported our students on the day and staff members Mel Framp, Natalie Nugent, Lauren Grocott and Brad Cates who assisted with managing and officiating events. Students appreciated the support and encouragement from our Heads of School who spent a significant amount of their day at the carnival.

Congratulations on a great meet!
