On Thursday 6th March and Friday 7th March, 18 students from Caroline Chisholm College competed in the All Schools Triathlon individual and teams’ event at the International Regatta Centre, Penrith. Over the days there were over 2000 students participating from across the state, with many schools showing their strength in the sheer numbers of teams they entered. All the Caroline Chisholm students who participated were exceptionally well behaved and represented the school with pride. They were competitive and diligent in their individual races and performed to the very best of their abilities over the two days.
The school entered one individual competitor and ten teams.
Our individual representative was Danielle Snyder of Year 8. The six teams entered were spread across the junior, intermediate and senior sections. On average competitors had to swim 400 metres, ride 10 kms and run 4 kms.
Our results were as follows –
- Junior teams – 39th and 42nd in the Catholic Schools category
- Intermediate team – 20th in the Catholic Schools category
- Senior teams – 7th, 13th and 19th in the Catholic Schools category
- Danielle Snyder – 29th in the Catholic Schools category
The complete Caroline Chisholm triathlon team was as follows – Isabella Ryan, Ciara Morgan, Madeleine Rushton, Lucy Harris, Madeline Haydon, Casey O’Sullivan, Sabrina Holloway, Lily Danby, Kaitlin Patterson, Georgia Wood, Danielle Snyder, Abbey Tricot, Sam Arnold, Jennifer McDonald, Lauren Dahl, Jaime-Lee Wemmerslager, Riley O’Connor and Sydney Harris.
Thankyou to the parents and supporters who attended on the day. I look forward to future successes next year in the 2015 triathlon.
