In early Week 11, eighteen PLHS students travelled to Adelaide to compete in the annual SSSSA Athletics Carnival; they formed part of the Far West squad, which also included Ceduna and Streaky Bay.
Far West proved to be fierce competition in the Division 1 C grade, beating Heathfield, Kapunda, Unley, Waikerie and Eastern Fleurieu. We placed third overall with 590 points, narrowly defeated by Kadina on 600 and division winners Naracoorte with 633.
Our Far West girls dominated the competition with a 344 point overall win; the Stevens sisters – Ella and Amelia – contributing significantly to our final score. The boys were not so fortunate, with injuries and competition numbers major factors in their eighth placing.
All of our competitors enjoyed a great day, showing off their athletic talents at the state-of-the-art Santos Stadium. Thank you to the organisers who made it such a success.
