Airport/Western District Athletics Day
Friday 10th May I had the pleasure in taking our Grange athletics team to compete in the Airport/Western District Athletics Day held at Henley Memorial Oval. With a team of 33 athletes we were nominated to compete in the large school competition. Having a forecast of possible hail and thunderstorms, we were extremely lucky not to be hit with any major downfalls during the day.
Our athletes competed against some of the best from other local schools where the competition was fierce. Most of our students placed in their events with many winning them outright. The last event of the day were the relays where Grange was very successful placing in every age group. To finish off a well organised and fantastic day Grange won the overall day taking home the large school cup for the fourth year in a row.
From the results of district day we have 20 students nominated to represent their event in the up coming State Athletics Competition being held at Santos Stadium next week. A big thank you needs to be said for all the helpers that came along to support the team on the day. Overall it was a great day with many highlights for our students. I personally wish all the best to those who are competing in the State Athletics Competition.
