The APS Athletics Carnivals were held over three days from 4-10 August at All Saints Anglican School and Somerset College.
We saw some outstanding individual and team results and I would like to congratulate the students on the way they competed and their attitude on the day. It was very rewarding to see the students who attend regular training run, jump and throw personal bests, which is what we are all about.
Students who placed in the top two will be invited to attend the South Coast Carnival later in the term and we wish them luck in their preparation for the day.
I would like to congratulate the following students on their outstanding achievements on the day:
Congratulations to the following students who placed in the top three in their individual events.

For the 100m, 200m, 400m and Hurdle events, the placings are overall placings based on results in A and B Division.
In both the Senior and Junior carnivals we placed 6th, which was an improvement from 7th last year. This is a credit to our coaches and the students for their hard work throughout the season.
I would like to thank our coaching staff, Mr Steve Mikael, Ms Dana Anders, Mr Steve Clacher and Mr Dai Abe, for their ongoing work through Term 2 and 3. I would also like to thank our external coaches, Ms Jessica Hughes, Mr Antony Drinkwater-Newman and Mr Fraser Thurlow, for their ongoing work with our sprinters and javelin throwers.
We wish students the best of luck in their preparation for the Regional Carnival later in the term.
