Last month, 76 Braemar students competed in the ICCES Athletics Competition at Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park.
After a very close competition all day which saw Braemar running 3rd for the majority, we took out 4th place overall. The competition was especially close between the three teams that finished 3rd to 5th place; Bacchus Marsh Grammar, Goulburn Valley Grammar School and Braemar.
Some of the students with the strongest and most competitive performances are listed below:
- Charlie May, Year 7 Male.
Charlie finished the day with a lot of points and was very, very close to taking out Age Group Champion.
- Abby Thomson, Year 8 Female.
Abby broke the high jump record for her age group, beating the previous record by 4cms and setting a new record of 155cms. Abby was also very close to taking out Age Group Champion.
- Jack Hansford, Year 10 Male.
Jack competed very strongly and accrued a lot of points bringing him quite close to Age Group Champion.
- Matilda Smith – Year 12 Female.
Matilda was a very strong competitor for Braemar throughout the day.
Congratulations to all the students who participated.
