CSSA State Triathlon

2017 10 26 triathlon 01On Thursday 26 October Pacific Hills Christian School sent a team of 40 keen athletes to compete in the CSSA State Triathlon and Biathlon events. Our students performed exceptionally well on the day, each of them pushing themselves beyond their limits by either experiencing the event for the first time or setting personal bests. We had four of our Primary aged students compete in the individual Biathlon and six of our Secondary aged students compete in the individual Triathlon throughout the day. A special mention to Kelly Dixon who placed 2nd in the Intermediate Girls Individual event and Scott Connorton who placed 3rd in the Intermediate Boys Individual event.

This year our teams brought home more medals than they have in the past, achieving positions across the board that no other PHCS team have done in the past. A special congratulations to the following teams who gained a position on the podium at the end of the day:

Junior Girls Team: 3rd Place – Ashleigh Moore, Abby Middlebrook, Elise Bell
Intermediate Boys Team: 1st Place – James Smit, James Reynolds, Darcy Dearden
Intermediate Girls Team: 3rd Place – Charlotte Young, Jessica Middlebrook, Kelly Dixon
Senior Girls Team: 2nd Place – Arianne Tonge, Bella Cabral, Ellie Petschack

Well done to the entire team, a very fun and challenging day that will be left in the sports memory bank for a long time to come. We look forward to seeing more students put their hand up to try something new and challenge themselves in either a Triathlon or Biathlon event in 2018.
