The conclusion to the 8 years girls 50m

 

Thorpe House has held off a fast finishing Freeman House to secure its fifth consecutive Parkview PS Athletics Carnival title at the LHS Ovals on the last day of Term 2.
 
On a perfect day for Athletics, the coveted House Championship was in the balance until the final relay event of the day, with Tess Staines anchoring a memorable Senior Girls Relay win for her house and ensuring the streak of wins continued for Thorpe.
 
Earlier in the day, some highly competitive field and track events saw some outstanding performances from athletes, highlighted by high levels of participation and outstanding sportsmanship.
 
Some genuinely elite performances were recorded on the day, with Tess Staines smashing the 11 years Girls 100m record by over a second, running 15.31 seconds and in the process consigning Melissa Davy's record set 13 years ago to the history books. Brandon Hollies also etched his name into the records books, breaking the Senior Boys Long Jump record that had previously been held by Nicholas Beecher for nine years.
 
The efforts of students throughout the carnival saw 53 students earn representative honours, with students due to compete at the LNPSSA Athletics carnival to be held at the LHS Ovals on Friday, 10th August. RankHouse  Points
