BBSSSA Athletics

On Wednesday 16th August St Paul’s Catholic College Manly sent a team to the BBSSSA Athletics Carnival at Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush.

Our students had just competed in our College athletics carnival so it was a tremendous effort for them to back up and compete again the next day. Our students showed tremendous grit and determination to produce excellent results despite very strong competition.

A big congratulations to both Archer Saunders who finished 2nd in the Age Champion points in the U13 division and Joel Foster who finished 3rd in the U17 division.
