There was plenty of action at the 2021 IGSSA Cross Country and Athletics competitions!

It all started in June, where Perth College performed strongly to place sixth overall in Cross Country.

As a cohort, the Year 7s placed fourth, while the Year 9 runners placed third.

Health and Physical Education teacher, Courtney Guard, said she was proud of the capable and courageous students, who put in an impressive effort.

“The team trained hard all term under the expert guidance of their coaches and many personal bests were achieved on the day,” she said.

In September, the Senior School Athletics team headed to the State Athletics Centre for the IGSSA Carnival for another day of impressive achievements. Perth College placed third overall, showing how capable and courageous they are and putting in their best efforts for every event.

As a cohort, the Year 8s and 9s both placed third and there were a number of notable individual achievements from Eilidh and Leah (Year 7), Ella (Year 8), Evelyn (Year 9), Dannielle (Year 10) and Nina and Hana (Year 12).

It was a well-deserved outcome for Perth College athletes, coaches and staff after months of training and dedication.
