Big congratulations to all students who represented both Glenaeon and the ISD, the competition was tough and at a high level, however our students participated with enthusiasm, goodwill and integrity and many placed in the top 10 in their respective events, which is a huge feat considering they were competing against the best in other regions. A special mention to Lenny T who came 4th overall in the u13 100m! And to Year 8 student Genna H who ran a PB (1:09min) over 400m (lane 2) and was mighty proud. Genna came 4th in her two heats.
The breadth of events our students qualified in was remarkable but running remains our strongest suit as we had 100m, 400m 800m and also 1500m distance runners in various age groups doing so well.
We can be very proud as a smaller school to have some outstanding young talent among our students! They need to be congratulated for their tenacity, skill and talent. A big shout out to the parents who supervised them on the day.
Well done to all!
