Despite the overcast conditions, the 2022 inter – house cross country carnivals were a huge success; with excellent student attendance, passionate house support and high quality racing. Once again, the day was divided into two separate carnivals, with the 9 to 12 years competing in the morning and the 13 years to Open competing in the afternoon. Across both carnivals, the standard was high and the desire for house points was very evident. All students competed on the ‘campus loop course’, which provided a great opportunity for spectators to absorb the battles that were unfolding on the track. The course deliberately blended fast oval running, with sharp, short hills to effectively test all runners. Every student who toed the start line and competed at least one lap earned valuable house points, whilst those who showcased their skill and tenacity placing in the top 15 contributed valuable additional points.
Congratulations to Stephan House who claimed the overall aggregate trophies in both carnivals, and to Mackenzie House who claimed the Spirit Shield in the senior event. Thank you to the Trinity Aquatics Supporters Group who served in the canteen for the entire day; thank you to Mr Elsom and the grounds staff for devoting considerable time and energy in setting up and packing up the carnival and to the Trinity teaching staff who performed various, valuable jobs on the day to ensure the smooth running of the 2022 Inter-house Cross Country Carnival.
