Monday of Week 10, Term 1, saw the Naracoorte High School Athletics Team travel to Adelaide in preparation to compete in the annual Statewide Athletics competition on Tuesday, March 30th. Monday nights’ accommodation was at Nunyara Accommodation facility in Belair. This facility provided an excellent space for the students to mix and interact with each other in a positive and spacious setting, while being well fed for dinner, breakfast, recess and lunch.
On Tuesday, we competed in division B2, moving up from C1 in 2019. All students displayed excellent sportsmanship, team spirit and put in outstanding efforts on the track and in the field. At times, athletes were called on to cover for their teammates due to injury or unavailability to get to their events due to clashes. Throughout the day we achieved 17 first, 13 seconds and 17 thirds, with an overall combined result of 2nd, behind Kadina. One of the keys to our success was the fact we filled all events.
We also had 3 students achieve standards within their events.
• Zara East U14 Girls Discus
• Brooke Edwards U14 Girls 1500m and 800m
• George Malone U15 Boys 400m
