We had some amazing athletes at the new Nga Puna Wai Track today at the Primary Sports Canterbury Athletic Championships today.
Four of our five relay teams qualified fastest for the finals and in the end we came away with a first and two seconds – an amazing effort! Well done to the Year 7 Boys (PJ Palamo, Ethan Lorgelly, Henry Copeland and Elliot Graves) on a comprehensive victory and there were great seconds from the Year 8 Boys (Zasha Marshall, Hayden Van Vliet/Tevita Lenati, Noah Gemmell and TC Lui) and Girls (Lucy McConnell, Abbie Irvine, Eva Bader and Kavanah Lene).
PJ Palamo won the discus with a massive 32m+ throw and he was also second in the shot put. Our distance runners did exceptionally well – all finishing in the top ten in races of about 35. Elliot Graves was 2nd in the Year 7 Boys, Silas Jones and Noah Davis were close 4ths in the Year 5 and Year 8 races, Bonnie Graves 7th (Y5 Girls) and Max Blockley 10th (Y8 Boys).
Khonnah Vanilau was 2nd in the shot put and the Lene sisters both took 3rds in the discus, Perez in the Year 6 and Kavanah in the Year 8s.
