Aug 13 - Our Emmanuel Athletics team has done it again, winning our 3rd APS title in the last 4 years with a superb team performance at Griffith Uni today.
It was a thrilling day. Emmanuel started the morning with a 40 point lead after the 1500m and Javelin events last Friday. This grew to a 100 point lead early in the day after some great hurdles. By 1pm however ASAS had whittled the lead back to just 13 points. A great set of relay results which saw us win 5 of 10 races, and some excellent final field events, saw us claim the title.
Individually Justine Ramsay was outstanding, breaking the 100m, 200m and 400m APS records in the 13 G – Relay record also!
Emma Perry and Beau Douglas were the 13 yr Age Champions. While Gabby Dalton 2nd, Tristan Finegan 2nd, Zara Crane Simmons 3rd and Brittany Gerada 3rd were all placed highly in their respective age divisions.
We finished 2nd in the percentage trophy which is also excellent, considering we are the 2nd largest school.
All in all, after finishing 3rd last year, it was another great day for our sport.
A huge thanks to Coach Mr Andrew Ferris who keeps delivering great results!
