Interschools Athletics

On Tuesday 19 February Union hosted the annual Primary Interschools Athletics Meeting with Laer Volkskool. In perfect weather conditions, our beautiful school fields were a hive of activity where the athletes were involved in a total of 64 events ranging from U7 to U13, involving field and track events. Many of the races were very closely contested making it difficult for the place judges. All participants need to be commended on their good sportsmanship throughout the day. This ensured that an enjoyable event could take place. Many thanks must go to our neighbours Laer Volkskool for their participation and for competing in good spirit.
During the meeting 14 new records were set, 5 by Union athletes.
Congratulation to the following on setting new records:
Alutha Wesi – Boys u13 200m, 100m
Siphosethu Vena – Girls u13 100m
Daniel Short – Boys u11 High Jump, 100m
The final point’s position was: Union- 1074 and LVS – 774
