On Wednesday 12 September the AGSV Combined Athletics Carnival was staged at Lakeside Stadium, under clear blue skies, which was a welcome change from the conditions that greeted the competition in 2017!
The Girls Team were aiming to win their third Athletics Premiership in succession and their fourth premiership in five years. The Boys Team were keen to continue the forward progress they established last year and accumulate more points than last year and finish higher. Very pleasingly, both objectives were achieved. The Girls Team returned the Premiership Trophy to Ivanhoe Grammar School and the Boys Team scored more than 60 points more than the previous year.
There were numerous outstanding performances and multitude of personal bests achieved on the day. The feeling amongst the Ivanhoe Team was tremendously positive and we enjoyed great parental support.
Finally, for the second time in the School’s history, the School was able to win the ‘unofficial’ Combined Premiership for the highest score across both genders.
