Multiple records broken at athletics carnival

Henry Kendall High School held its forty-sixth annual Athletics Carnival on May 20 at Mingara. 

The day had many close competitions both individually and between the four houses. Records seemed to be the theme for the day with multiple records broken by fi ve different students. Both Tyler and Katie Gunn broke multiple records, Tyler in the 17 boys 400m (50.45 sec) and Long Jump (6.29m), and Katie in the 13 girls 100m (13.24 sec), 200m (28.02) and Triple Jump (10.12m). Other records on the day went to Georgia Davis 17 girls 200m (27.46 sec) and Sam Bennett in the 13 Boys Discus (24.11m). Finlay Flanagan-Flaherty also equalled the 13 girls High Jump at (1.49m).

To break or equal a record is a major accomplishment, with some of our records going back to the 1970’s. So a special congratulations goes to these students whose records may still be there in another 30 years. The day went to Narara, from Araluen, with Corumben and Warrigal in third and fourth place. Congratulations to all competitors for their sportsmanship and enthusiasm on the day. Those lucky, or rather talented enough, to fi nish an individual event in either fi rst or second place will be in the school team for zone on June 27 at Mingara.
