Avila Squad wins Div 2 SCSA Athletics Championships

All of the hard work and training has paid off for the Avila College Athletics Squad as they were declared the winners of the Division 2 SCSA Athletics Championships. Held at Lakeside Stadium the Championships were closely contested by eight schools in a range of track and field events.

The Head of Athletics at Avila College David Bullock said he could not be more proud of the team. “The way they supported each other was fantastic. I asked each girl to go out and do their best, to focus on the process and let the outcome take care of itself.”   

There were consistently excellent results throughout the day and many of the athletes recorded personal best performances. Some showed their desperation to win by claiming victory with a last lunge effort on the line. 

The Principal, Louise Gunther, was there to cheer on the girls and to congratulate them on their victory. She also acknowledged and thanked the dedicated staff involved in preparing the girls so well for the meet.
