Last Wednesday's Inter-house Cross Country Carnival was a resounding success. Once again, the day was divided into two separate carnivals, with the 9 to 12 years competing in the morning and the 13 years to Open competing in the afternoon.The standard across both carnivals was high, and the hunger for house points was very evident. All students (and a couple of able staff members) competed on the ‘campus loop course’, which provided a great opportunity for spectators to absorb the battles that were unfolding on the track. The course deliberately blended fast oval running, with sharp, short hills to effectively test all runners. Every student who toed the start line and competed at least one lap earned valuable house points, whilst those who showcased their skill and tenacity and placed in the top 10 contributed valuable additional points.
We are really proud of all our students for their excellent attendance, genuine and committed participation (no matter what their level of skill), overt and passionate house spirit and great athletic performances. Congratulations to Stephan House who took out first place on the day. Individually, congratulations to those students who placed in top three within their respective age groups to claim age champion trophies and medals, along with those students who placed in the top 8, as they will wear the Trinity singlet at this week's APS Cross Country Championships. With the calibre of results witnessed on the day, it is hoped that we will finish strong at the APS carnival.
Age-champions are as follows:
Last but definitely not least, a big thank you to our Athletics Support Group who manned the canteen for the entire day; to Trinity facility staff for their considerable devotion of time and energy in setting up and packing up the carnival and to the Trinity teaching staff who performed various, valuable jobs on the day to ensure the smooth running of the 2021 Inter–house Carnival. Our sights now move to the inter–house athletics carnival that will take place in the last week of this term.
