Good evening members,

Our Athletes Shine with Personal Bests and Medal Hauls

Weekend 2 of the Victorian All Schools Track & Field Championships saw 17 of our valiant Old Scotch athletes compete, setting more personal bests and bagging several medals. The experience they gained and the lessons learned are invaluable. A remarkable 15 Scotch/Old Scotch athletes secured a position in the top 8, equivalent to being State finalists. The U17 800m final was a highlight of the weekend, with Will Katic (Trinity Grammer School) and Sam Allen both achieving substantial personal bests to clinch silver and bronze respectively. Additionally, Lily Taylor (St Catherines School) sprinted to gold in her 200m race, while Bart led a strong performance in a thrilling 3000m final to take first place.

Here are some of the standout performances from our athletes below:
