On Thursday 30th August the St Dominic’s College Athletics’ team travelled to Sydney Olympic Park Athletics’ Centre to compete in the MCS Athletics Championships. The team was determined to rival St Gregory’s College long stand as the Athletics Champions. Despite only one weeks turn around from the College Carnival, the track and relay teams had participated in training sessions in the days leading up to the Championship. The College was represented by 55 students overall on the day. Significantly, each event on the program had had a representative from St Dominic’s College; this is a testament to our students as most rivalling MCS Colleges find it difficult to achieve the same level of participation.

Across the course of the day, there were some outstanding individual results on both the track and the field. It is difficult to highlight standout performances. However, witnessing the dominance of the College 4 x100m relay teams was fantastic. Across seven age divisions, St Dominic’s placed 1st in five and 2nd in the remaining two. Not only were the results reason for affirmation, but the way in which team members stayed till the end to support each other was just as pleasing.

Congratulations to our Year 12 team members who put in a great performance in their last meet together. Thank you to the following boys on your contribution to the team across the last six years:

EJ Brown-Vaelua, Zane Carroll, Ethan Harris, Mason Iaria, Braydon Mataio, James Neilly, Jacob Nuqui, Riley Stokes, Immanuel Tagaloamatua, Trent Weir and Liam Waldon.

Thank you to Mr Ronchetti who assisted with training students in the lead up to the Championship. Thank you to Miss Day, Mr Kilbourne, Mr Mackinnon, Miss Cook and Mr Hall for their support in distributing team apparel, marshalling events and supervising and supporting students throughout the day. Overall, well done to each of our students who gave their best and supported their teammates at the Championships. Congratulations to the following students who received Age Champion and Runners Up honours for 2018.
