Southern Metropolitan Region Athletics

On Thursday 6th October eight Western Port students competed in the Southern Metropolitan Region Athletics at Casey Fields. The day was sunny with some terrific athletes participating for the medals. Over 60 schools are included in this region including high profile schools such as Melbourne High, McKinnon, Frankston, Mornington and Berwick who have over 1300 students. Tom Finn won a gold medal in the 400m which entitles him to a place in the state championships as well as winning two silvers. This is our first state representative for a few years. A fantastic individual effort. All our students were amazing and we came away from the day with one gold and five silver medals. Overall WPSC came a credible 30th which is better than last year. Congratulations to all students on such an impressive result for such a small school.
