Last Friday, 7th March we had our annual Francis Douglas Athletics sports.
There was a lot of encouragement and support coming from the grandstand, from houses and teammates encouraging and hyping members of their house.
New students had the opportunity to experience team relays and houses competing against one another in very competitive fields.
Both the track and Field events saw some exceptional talent and students pushing themselves to compete for their house.
The seniors came with some very creative costumes, and were great entertainment for the large number of supporters and parents that came for the day.
The weather was superb and the points started out rather even although Solomon had gained a lead from the preliminary events that had been held throughout the week leading up to Athletic Sports.
No records were broken although many came very close, as did the points for year group champions.
Solomon came away the clear winners, followed by LaSalle and then it was very pleasing to see Benildus fight deep to take third place over Loreto.
Over all it was a very successful day with many students competing in numerous races.
A big thank you to all the parents who came and supported the College.
Final points and age group Champions were:
1st Solomon 1733
2nd LaSalle 1594
3rd Benildus 1344
4th Loreto 1272
