On Wednesday 2 March, a team of 16 students from Years 7 to 10 participated in the School Sport SA State Triathlon Championships at the West Lakes Canoe Club.
Due to Monday’s torrential rain, the water quality was deemed too poor to risk swimming in, so the swim leg of the triathlon was changed to another run leg. Despite our athletes not being able to compete in the swim leg, they did an amazing job in the ‘Come n Try’ individual events, State individual qualifying, and also the team events.
Congratulations to our medal winners of the day, Year 7 student Mercy Walsh (7GPC-04) who placed third, and Year 8 students Sanur McMahon (8GPC-03), Maeve Nicholas (8GPC-03), and Jessica Burton (8GPC-03) who also placed third for the team event.
The weather was perfect and the team did St Michael’s proud!
