GSV Track & Field Preliminary Meeting – Wednesday, August 16th 2017
Lauriston’s Track & Field Team competed in the GSV Preliminary Meeting at Lakeside Stadium on Wednesday, August 16th. In spite of many ill and injured team members, most events were filled by our enthusiastic team.
It is a testament to the character of our students that many students stepped in to fill events that they may not have trained for, or were not comfortable with, but were prepared to ‘have a go’ for the team.
Lauriston finished 6th at the meeting and the team is looking forward to the Championships on August 31st or September 1st at Lakeside Stadium.
The following students were placed first in their events at the Preliminary Meet:
|Event||First Name||Family Name||Year||Time/Dist|
|10 High Jump A -Pit 1||Ellen||Ho||10||1.44|
|11 Javelin (500g) A||Julie||Chong||11||26.13|
|7 Triple Jump A||Claudia||Cameron||7||9.63|
|7 100m C||Anabella||Stephens||7||14.14|
|7 100m D||Hilary||Luo||7||14.33|
|10 100m D||Ellen||Ho||10||13.97|
|10 Shot Put (3kg) A||Lara||Stebbens||10||10.27|
Congratulations to all students on their efforts. All members represented the school extremely well.
Lauriston was the ‘Host’ school for the meeting and was required to provide 18 student officials. Thank you to the many students who were officials on the day; including many of our athletes who volunteered to help out on the day. Our officials all represented the school admirably and were complimented by the GSV staff running the event.
