Loreto Toorak Victory in GSV Preliminary Athletics Carnival


Loreto Toorak is pleased to announce that we were again successful in winning the GSV Preliminary A Athletics Carnival. The girls were in fine form and in surprisingly good conditions on the track our girls produced some remarkable results.

Achieving first place in each division; Junior (452), Intermediate (402.5) and Senior (406), Loreto Toorak were crowned champions with an overall score of 1260.5 ahead of our closest rival Sacre Coeur in second place with 1007.5.

Of particular note was a new record achieved by Shot Put Thrower, Lauren McGarry (Year 8), who threw 11.88m. An outstanding achievement.

The team, led by Athletics Captains Ellie Ansett and Vivienne Johnston, has now qualified for the Championship Division 1 Carnival which will take place on Friday 30 August at Lakeside Stadium.

As always it was an exceptional team effort by the students and staff, and thanks extend to Head Coaches Kate Richardson and Kath O'Connell for their tireless high calibre work with the girls, and Helen Jaensch for her unconditional support.

It was smooth sailing - and now onto the Championships!
