Sprinting onto the Podium
The Mount Carmel College Athletics Team produced outstanding performances at both the SSATIS Athletics Carnival and the SATIS Athletics Carnival, both held at the Domain Athletics Centre.
Weather conditions were less than perfect with a couple of nasty showers at the SSATIS Carnival, but the team was on fire and their outstanding performances helped Mount Carmel to its equal best ever result, finishing 2nd in the Girls Junior Shield, 2nd in the U13s, U14s and U15s Pennants and 4th in U16 Pennant. Last year the team finished 5th, so this was a tremendous improvement and reflects the commitment and hard work the team has put in to training this year.
A slightly smaller contingent of athletes had another outstanding day out at the State SATIS Carnival, with the team again showing some grit and determination, with many individuals exceeding their performance at the southern event. Captain Tahlia Bortignon led the way, winning two amazing sprints.
Mount Carmel finished 3rd in the Girls Junior Shield, an amazing improvement from last year’s 12th position.
