The 2019 ACC Athletic Championships were held at the Lakeside Stadium on Wednesday March 27th. After 7 weeks of training the Parade team were keen to test themselves against the other ACC schools. Under ideal conditions, early consistent performances both on the ‘track’ and in the ‘field’ saw the Parade team take an 18 point lead. The evenness of the competition saw this margin fluctuate slightly throughout the day, with St. Bernards, St. Josephs Geelong and Whitefriars all hot in pursuit. The Parade team responded to all challenges and took a 30 point lead into the final relay events. The U/13 Relay was the first of 7 relay events, and with the Parade team executing excellent ‘changeovers’, convincingly won the event. The poise shown by the 4 Year 7 boys set the tone for the other relay teams. The consistent performance which was so evident throughout the day continued in the remaining 6 relay events, which resulted in Parade winning a third consecutive Division One ACC Athletic Championships. Whilst Parade’s success was the result of an outstanding team performance, listed below are the students who won an ACC Athletic event.

Aaron Doyle (Yr.7 L12) – 800m, 4 x 100m relay
