2018 ACS Athletics Championships…all the news

2018 Athletics Championships…all the news

What a day of track and field at Lakeside Stadium! The anticipation of a tight, competitive event was indeed fulfilled and exceeded our expectations. Athletes from all schools were determined in their commitment to do their very best for their school. The spirit in which all athletes competed was inspiring and the strength of the competition and the camaraderie is at its very best. The athletes are a credit to themselves and their schools.  

In terms of the overall results; it was St Leonard’s that took out the Overall Aggregate trophy for the first time in four years and the Aggregate Girls Trophy, last won by St Leonard’s in 2016. St Leonard’s had set themselves the goal of winning and their commitment to that goal has seen these excellent results. Overnewton turned out to be the surprise outsider holding a lead throughout the day prior to the commencement of the 800m and relay events. Overnewton was able to maintain their lead and take out the Aggregate Boys Trophy for the first time in ACS history; the College’s first ACS Trophy from any championships. They placed third in the Overall Aggregate and Aggregate Girls sections; a fantastic result. We have been witness to Overnewton’s steady progress over many years where all of the hard work has paid off. Congratulations to St Leonard’s and Overnewton on your success at this year’s Championships. Last year’s winners; Westbourne were runners up in the Overall Aggregate and Aggregate Girls, another excellent result.

There are 21 pennants awarded across all year levels for Boys, Girls, Aggregate and these were shared among four schools; St Leonard’s 10, Overnewton 5, Westbourne 5 and Beaconhills 1. A testament to the high level of competition saw 11 new records set. Please see the list of new records below the final scores.

Athletes of the Meet

The Male and Female Athletes of the Meet are awarded based on individual points accumulated from a maximum of five events and a possible 100 points.

This year, for the first time, we had a three way tie for the Female Athlete of the Meet with the athletes from Overnewton, St Leonard’s and Westbourne achieving a perfect 100 points. For the Male Athlete of the Meet award there was a tie between an athlete from Beaconhills and from St Michael’s who both achieved 98 points from five events. Of the 11 new records set, six were set by our Athletes of the Meet. Congratulations to these five wonderful athletes on their outstanding achievements.
