The ACC A Division Athletics Carnival was held at the WA Athletics Stadium on Wednesday 12 September 2018. The team focus for the day centred on being accountable to team mates and bringing effort.
After six weeks of frustrating weather hampering our preparations, the Corpus kids pulled together, embraced the challenge of the big stage, and competed with courage and determination.
After a shaky start in the hurdles, Corpus regained composure and consistently placed front of the pack on the track for the remainder of the carnival. Our middle-distance runners were superb. Our throwers and jumpers were resolute, and Corpus enjoyed our most consistent results in the field for a number of years. On the Scoreboard, Corpus were in a close tussle with Chisholm, Peter Moyes and John Septimus Roe, all day. The final placings rested with the all-important relays and Corpus did not disappoint. In the closing stages the Corpus relay synergy shone through and our Goal of ‘Top 3’ in the Overall Aggregate was realised.
Our Corpus girls continued to impress. They were fearless and strong all day. We were awarded 2nd place in the Senior Girls Shield and 2nd in the Overall Girls Shield, which was a fantastic result.
Special mention must go to the following outstanding individual athletes who all had a splendorous day.
