The Otago Athletics Championships took place last Friday night and Saturday at The Caledonian.

Otago Boys’ were represented with a team of 54 young men, all proudly wearing their much coveted “O” singlets.

It was a successful day.

I would like to mention the effort and participation of all the boys, the respect they displayed to the other competitors and their humility when they were successful.

Of note were the following 1st placings:

Senior 1500m Jack Divers

U16 1500m Joshua Potter

U16 Triple Jump George Taylor

U15 1500m; U15 800m Ashton Booth

U14 1500m; U14 3000m George Hamilton (RECORD)

U16 400m Joshua Friend (PB)

U16 110m Hurdles; Senior 300m Hurdles (RECORD); U16 Shot Put Cam Moffitt

U14 Triple Jump; Pole Vault; 3rd 100m Hurdles Luke Moffitt

U14 100m; Shot Put Jacob Waide (RECORD)

Senior 4x1 Relay Michael Manson, George Vare, Jackson Toms, Cam Moffitt

A special mention must go to Jamin Millar who competed in three field events – Hammer, Discus, Shot Put – he placed in all three.

Thank you to all the parents who made it possible for their sons to represent our school. It was a great day.
