Last Tuesday on the 4th of May, the EISM Athletics Carnival was held at the Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park. It was a cold and windy day, but in the wet and slippery conditions our team put on an amazing performance. Over 70 Huntingtower students competed on the day, and as a team they placed fourth overall and second for most improved which is a wonderful result against the larger schools!
Over 50 members of the team were invited to the EISM Champions Carnival, which took place on Monday the 10th of May.
It was a fantastic day and the rain just about held off as Huntingtower students put on another incredible performance. After the weeks of training and early mornings, each competitor gave it their best effort! The hard work clearly paid off with such these exciting results:
