Wishart Win Girls’ School Athletics!

November 09, 2018 at 3:30 PM

Despite the blustery wind and occasional drizzle, nothing could dampen the enthusiasm and energy of our girls in Years 0-6 this week, as their athletics events got underway.

The Middle School girls in Years 4-6 were first to put their running, jumping and throwing skills to the test on a day of unrelenting wind! Held at the College track, friendly support and competitive determination went hand in hand as each tried for a personal best whilst encouraging others around them.

Later in the week, it was the turn of the Junior School girls in Years 0-3. For many of these girls, it was their first taste of competitive athletics but help was on hand from the Year 8 girls who helped to get them organised. Who can resist a sack race? The highlight of the morning, the girls were eager to clamber into the House coloured sack and leap their way to the finish line!

The senior girls in Years 7 and 8 competed earlier in the year along with their peer group at the College; the combined groups making for a tougher field of competition. At this meet, Jade Nomani (Year 8) broke the record for the 200m (29.25) and 300m (47.57) whilst Arya Blackler broke the 800m record (2.44.68).

When all the points were tallied, Wishart were overall winners for the second year in a row!

Well done to all the competitors, especially those who earned a place on the podium.
