South West District Athletics
At the end of Term 3 we started to prepare ourselves for the South West District Athletics Carnival. We were thrilled this event was still happening because of the delay in Term 2 due to COVID-19.
As we have numerous talented students, we planned our trials for those who wished to be in our athletics team. There was some great talent shown in our trials but it was tough competition. We could only take one Seacliff student for each event. These events were 100m, 200m, 800m, long jump, high jump, shot put and discus.
On Tuesday the 27th of October, 41 students attended the South West District Athletics Carnival held at Athletics SA Stadium. It was an early start – leaving school before 8am! It was a fantastic day with great sportsmanship displayed by Seacliff. Our school finished 8th at the event with 54 points.
Congratulations to Eddie Kerwin who was the only student to win his event and make it into the South West athletics team for high jump.
Thank you to Leah Watkins, Kate Daly and Nathan Beenham for ensuring this event was successful for Seacliff by coming along to help manage the day.
