The day started off a wet and gloomy but it turned out to be a fabulous day for the 160 Blackburn High School students who participated in the recent District Athletics Carnival.
Blackburn High School finished in first place 300 points ahead of their competition:
Blackburn HS – 1707 Points
Koonung SC – 1461 Points
East Doncaster SC – 1238
Box Hill HS – 966 Points
Box Hill Senior – 749 Points
In addition, eight of our students were champions in their age group. As there were only 12 age group championships this is a considerable achievement.
31 of our athletics will now progress to the Regional Championships.
