On Thursday, 31 August, two Stella Maris teams entered the NSW Athletics School Knockout Carnival at Homebush. This is a team event, where the athletes compete individually in their events to gain points for their team. It is a very high level carnival with schools from all over NSW competing with some age groups having more than 30 schools.
The Stella teams’ performance was exceptional! Our U17 team did especially well in all of their events and finished the carnival in third place! This is an amazing result. This team has now qualified for the National Final which will be held in Adelaide in Term 4.
Congratulations to the Under 17 team: Tasma W, Sophie W, Sydney K, Amy P, Emily S, Emma M and Skye C.
The Under 15 team also had some fantastic, finishing in a very commendable 19th place. Well done to all girls in the Junior team Brooke S, Mila M, Mia T. Kylah W and Grace B
Best of luck to our athletes who will be competing at the NSWCCC carnival this week.
