Southern Valley District Athletics Day

What a fantastic day we had here at REC last Wednesday 31 August as we competed in and hosted the Southern Valley District Athletics Day. Our amazing grounds and facilities, Coffee Cart, and participating students all brilliantly represented and showcased the College. Capping off the day was the news that finished in 2nd place in the large schools division, only narrowly missing first – a huge improvement on previous years.

Out of our students, who all competed fiercely and fairly, certain special mentions need to be made. The following students received silver and bronze medals for their efforts:

Bryce T: 2nd, Discus
Nate B: 2nd, Discus
Issy B: 2nd, Discus
Lenny C: 2nd, 800m
Summer B: 2nd, Long Jump
Salina G: 3rd, 800m
Hunter J: 3rd, Long Jump
Makaylah H: 3rd, High Jump
Lachlan K: 3rd, Shot Put

The following students scored themselves a ticket to the State Athletics Championships to represent the Southern Valley District in their nominated events after exceptional performances and either a 1st place finish, a Wild Card entry, or qualifying for the relay team by finishing top 4 in the 100m:

Summer B: Relay
Sasha W: Relay
Hunter J: Relay
Carter H: Relay
Ryan H: Long Jump
Nate B: Shot Put
Analise S: 100m & Relay
Lenny C: Discus & Relay
Issy B: Shot Put & Discus
Keira: High Jump, Shot Put & Discus (yes, that means Keira managed to score 3 gold medals!)

Well done and congratulations to all involved!
