Deakin District Cross-Country Championships (Years 4, 5&6)
As a result of this House event the College selects our Inter-school cross-country runners to compete at the Deakin District XC (Year 4, 5&6) and the GISSA XC (Year 7 to 12) events. Yesterday we had 40 students participate in the Deakin District event, who all ran very well against 5 other Geelong schools. We congratulate our students on their performances in this event, and wish the following students all the very best as they have qualified for the North Geelong Division Championships (May 29th) as a result of their top 8 placing in the District XC event: Grace McFarland (10yr), George Burr (10yr), Maddy Grundberg (11yr), Ellie Morgan (11yr), Harry Morphet (11yr), Fraser Richardson (11yr), Emily Lawrie (12/13yr), Martin Dean (12/13yr), Ben Bowers (12/13yr), Tom Leszko (12/13yr) and Angus Fuller (12/13yr).
GISSA Track & Field Championships
Last Tuesday the College was well represented at the 2018 GISSA Track & Field Championships, where our team competed admirably on the track and in their respective field events. A number of the students broke GISSA records on the day, and our relay teams ran brilliantly to narrow the points gap between us and Kardinia IC. The team fell 14points short of overtaking Kardinia, however their performances as a whole across the program are to be commended. The team was superbly led by Isabel Hackett and Matthew Tattersall on the day, and we thank our Year 12 students for their efforts over the past six years at this event.
GISSA Record breakers included: Bethany Dean (14yr 1500m and 800m); Kasey Perkins (15yr triple jump, 100m and long jump); Matthew Tattersall (20yr 1500m); Nyah Brown (14yr 100m and 400m); Cooper Harvey (15yr discus); Kade Leigh (13yr 400m); Finlay Kirsopp-Cole (20yr 400m).
We look forward to next major Inter-school Carnival on the 30th May, which is the GISSA Cross-Country Carnival.
