Sports Day 2019

29 May 2019

The 43rd Annual Sports Day was held on Tuesday 28th May 2019.  The weather was favourable throughout the day with the sun making a frequent appearance over the course of the day.  Year 8 to 10 girls took part in various track events in the morning while the boy’s competed in the field events and their other competitions were run off after lunch. 

The day climaxed with the 100m and 200m finals followed by the class relays. These proved very close contests with only 9 Lisbreen claiming a male and female double victory! 

Ryan Thom must be commended for once again a recording break performance in the 1500m final.  For the third year in a row, Ryan broke the year group record and in 2019 not only broke the Year 10 record but set a new overall record.  Ryan has had a very successful year in athletics and deserves tremendous credit for his efforts in the last three years at Junior Sports Day! Special mentor to another very talented athlete, Aisling Smith of Year 8.  Aisling also set a new Year 8 record female record in the 1500m.

Once again the 2019 SLG Sports Day was a resounding success. Scheduling now allows medals to be presented to event winners on the day so official photos can be taken on the podium! Well done to all the students who took part in their various events and collected points for their ‘house.’  Sports Day is an excellent showcase of the talent of St Louis students who participate whole heartedly and enthusiastically. Congratulations to the individual and relay winners.  Thank you to Mr Gillan for coordinating the day and to all the staff involved in the planning and preparation of Sports Day 2019 and to all those who supervised events and looked after the results, tuck shop and ice cream van queues.
