Middle School Sport Update

The annual Middle School Inter-House Athletics Carnival saw all boys compete in an action packed day full of events. The weather was mostly kind and allowed for some fierce competition in the track and field events. Two records fell in the field events thanks to the efforts of Benjamin Gale 6C and Joshua Hook 7L at the Turbo Javelin. At the track, a 22 year old record fell to Peter Stulpner 7G 100m who clocked an astonishingly 12.71s. Thanks must go to all the staff for all their contributions on the day. Final standings were:

State School Cross-Country Champions

Tuesday 13 August saw 15 athletes from Years 5, 6 and 7 compete at the State School Cross-Country Championships held at UWA Sports Park. The event was so popular amongst the WA schools that over 1500 competitors fielded the event. The Year 7 division consisting of Arthur Payne, Cooper Lindsay, Daniel Walker, Connor Enslin, Laine Mulvay and Matthew Murphy performed astonishingly winning the overall Year7 boys division. The Year 6 boys, consisting of Luca Fry, Benji Steinberg, Cormac Taylor, Jesse Macdonald and Mathew Moore, competed in a tough race and finished in credible positions in the top 60 competitors achieving personal best times.

Special congratulations to Luca Fry for finishing third in his race allowing him to go to the Nationals whilst Arthur Payne, Cooper Lindsay and Daniel Walker, will also have a chance to qualify in the coming months.

As a result of the placements in Year 5, 6 and 7 Scotch College won the overall Champion school in the boys division. The results speak of Scotch's great athletic prowess in the PSA division. Congratulations to the team on their outstanding performance.
