The NZSSAA Athletics Championships were held in Wellington, December 6-8. Sacred Heart sent 12 students to compete in multiple track, field and road events. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t come to the party and Wellington turned to Windy Wellington, with an electrical storm forcing the road race to be canceled. Hence, five of our boys missed out on competition in the event that was potentially our strongest.

None the less there were some very good performances in tough conditions that did not allow for PB’s. Thomas Dufty was the outstanding performer smashing an SHC record in both the 3000m and 2000m Steeplechase, despite being injured.
