On Thursday 29th June, Maclean High athletics team travelled to Lismore' Riverview Park for the Northern Rivers Zone Athletics carnival. Unfortunately, our team was depleted due to the previous date being washed out and the new date clashing with some students prior commitments.
This however did not dampen the enthusiasm or impact on the results, as many athletes stood in for the missing competitors, especially in the relays. At the conclusion of the carnival Maclean had taken out the Boys and Girls Pointscore.
Congratulations to Reece Warburton who was 12 years Age Champion with 1st place in 100m, 200m, High Jump and Long Jump. Placing 2nd in the Age Champion tally was Annika Swift (13 years), Luke Wright ((16 years) and Lucas Pirona (17 years).
