The 2022 Senior Athletics Carnival took place at the home of the Orange Army on Friday 5 August under clear skies, after rescheduling due to some extremely wet weather the week before. The first four days of the week offered up 90km winds and torrential rain before gifting us a dry day with little to no wind.
Congratulations to Eglinton House on a hard-fought victory. Their incredible level of participation proved to be the difference.
The atmosphere was electric all day with personal bests and records tumbling. There was healthy competition between the Houses no doubt spurred on by the dulcet tones of SJAS Director of Carnival Announcing, Mr Ryan Marlow, with music and support from House Bay Hill.
Our students continue to climb to new heights in their athletic performance which was obvious during the Blue-Ribbon High Jump event where our best athletes put on a show for the rest of the school. Equally impressive was the effort from all our students to push for personal best as well as the vital points for their House.
Some outstanding performances throughout the day were rewarded as ‘Champions and Runners-Up’ at the carnival’s conclusion. These were:
