The State School Western Australia Interschool Triathlon was held on Friday 5th of November at Champion Lakes Regatta Centre. The event included a 200m swim, 6km cycle and 2km run in which we entered two Year Six teams into B Division and two Year Five teams into C Division. This was the first time the Aquinas Junior School has entered the competition which saw great success. Both Year 6 teams finished 1st and 2nd respectively in what was a fantastic performance by our boys on the day, with our Year Five teams showing great grit to finish 6th and 20th respectively. Some key highlights were an impressive swim leg from Eli Hickman to give his team the lead which was matched by an outstanding bike leg by Christopher Chan to see his team in the clear transitioning into the run leg.

Year 6 (B Division)

  • 1st Place – Finn Marsden, Christopher Chan and William Rusbatch
  • 2nd Place – Eli Hickman, Alexander Peca and Lewis McLernon

Year 5 (C Division)

  • 6th Place – Finlay Bower, Benjamin Hartnett and Will O’Hehir

Thank you to all parents for the support and efforts on the day in getting your son to and from the venue. Thanks also to Mr Kieran Ducey for his work and assistance in getting the boys ready for their race on the day.
