2018 All Schools Athletics

2018 All Schools Athletics

At the beginning of the school holidays three of our Norwest students represented our College at the NSW All Schools Athletics Championships at Sydney Olympic Park. This event is the final stepping stone to qualify for Nationals in December and lures the best student athletes from Independent, Catholic and Government schools across the State. Amelia M, Imanya A and Oscar S represented our College in multiple events over the weekend amongst a very strong field and achieved some outstanding results. Both Amelia and Oscar qualified for Nationals and will get another chance to showcase their skills against the best student athletes in the country.

Amelia threw 33.99m in the 14 year girls javelin to finish 1st in that event and also finished 5th and 7th in Shot Put and Discus respectively. Oscar, competing as a Para-athlete finished 1st in the 800m, 2nd in the Long Jump, 4th in both the 100m and 200m and also finished 7th in the Discus. Imanya competed in the 200m and 400m, and although being a bit disappointed with her results, it proved to be a very competitive field and this first experience will be valuable for her going into the future. We are very proud of what our students are accomplishing out on the field and track and wish Oscar and Amelia all the best as they travel to compete in Cairns, Queensland in December.
