Phoenix races ahead to win
HOUSE teams Phoenix, Caledonia, Columbia and Glanmire competed in field and track events at James Nash High’s annual athletics carnival.
Records were broken by three students: Liam O’Brien – 14 years boys javelin (47.44m), Sean Lee – 14 years boys 1500m (4m.43.09s) and Lee Baines – 16 years boys 1500m (4m.48.40s).
Phoenix won with a total score of 1895, with the remaining teams close behind.
Students were encouraged to dress in their house colours more than any other year and compete as much as possible to win points.
Creative costumes amused students and staff. There was a black gorilla, super heroes, ancient Romans, ballerinas, a red truck and lots of coloured tights.
Age champions were Katie Williams and Josh Horbal (13 years), Aimee Bruckner and Liam O’Brien (14 years), Jess Hurrell and Drew Wenzel (15 years), Josie Whordley and Brad Payne (16 years) and Christina Aberley and Josh Clark (open).
It was a good effort from everyone who competed and the students had a lot of fun.
