Chalmers Back on Top for Inter-House Athletics

March 19, 2024 at 11:55 AM

Chalmers House is off to a stellar start to the year, claiming the victory at Athletics Day just one week after dominating Swimming Sports. With a legacy of success in Athletics, having secured four consecutive wins from 2016 to 2020, and again in 2022, they were momentarily dethroned by Cargill last year. However, Chalmers has swiftly regained its footing and is ready to continue the momentum in upcoming competitions.

Athletics Day, held on-site over a singular day, brings the entire school community together under a common goal. Each individual is driven to see their house emerge victorious, contributing in various ways. For some, the support of housemates lining the track proves pivotal in the difference between first and second place in events like the 100m dash. Others, enjoy trying their hand at a race or event they would not normally do, clocking up valuable participation points for their house. The day features a range of track events spanning from 100m to 3km, as well as field events such as long jump, high jump, triple jump, shot put, discus, and javelin.

Special thanks are owed to the sports staff for their meticulous organisation and execution of yet another successful event. As we look ahead to the next inter-house clash, the start of Term 2 promises cross-country to be a close contender, with defending champions Cargill looking to break Chalmers winning streak.
