With the Athletics SA Stadium at Mile End in a state of upgrade, our 80-athlete strong Track and Field Team travelled to Bridgestone Athletics Centre Salisbury for the biggest day of SAAS Athletics Competition. Compliment to those administrators, coaches and athletes that have represented SPSC in years gone by, there was a degree of expectation amongst our community that we bring the Cup home for the 49th time from 50 Carnivals. With many outstanding performances and equally outstanding attitudes, that we did.

Placing School Point Score
First St Peter’s College 1,341.5
Second Immanuel College 1,244.5
Third Trinity College 1,236.5
Fourth Prince Alfred College 972.5

Congratulations to every INDIVIDUAL that made up our TEAM, as you all contributed to the success achieved. Eight schools competed in Group A with another eight schools having competed a day earlier in Group B. On the day, the quality of our opposition undoubtedly lifted the satisfaction attached to the overall result.

The A.W. Tony Keynes OAM Medallion is presented annually to the SPSC ‘athlete that best epitomizes the spirit of the Achilles Cup’. This year’s winner is Lawson Jones. Lawson managed his program with dignity, competing in all four jumps events, Long, Triple, High Jumps and Pole Vault. If that wasn’t enough to keep him occupied, he also managed to fit hurdles and a relay into his hectic competition schedule.

Early next term, we’ll present a more detailed summary of the day.
