It was another successful Sports Day at Wirreanda Secondary School after a daunting (thanks to the weather) start to proceedings! The wind and the rain didn’t perturb the students as they began the first events moments after the sun came out and the day continued with some fantastic athletics performances. Students were competing for places in the Santos Inter school Athletics Team to be held in Week 10, and a number of events produced some brilliant performances. The 100m, 200m, High, Long and Triple Jumps were all hotly contested and an absolute pleasure to watch! There were some stand out performers on the day. Each of the following students also won their respective age divisions:
- Gypsy S and Colt S in the Under 13 age group,
- Aurora C and Spiro H in the Under 14 age group,
- Kara B and Costa H in the Under 15 age group,
- Layla F and Caleb W in the Under 16 age group,
- Paige K and Joey T in the Open division.
Some long standing records were broken by:
- Caleb W in the Under 16 Boys Long Jump,
- Layla F in the Under 16 Girls Javelin
- Gypsy S, in the Under 13 Girls High Jump, the Under 16 Girls Shot Put and the Under 16 Girls Triple Jump!
Lastly, a huge congratulations to Wheeler House for the back to back victory in 2016! The personal performances by many in that House, as well as fantastic participation paved the way for a great win.
