Stanford Lake College’s interhouse athletics day was held under a scorching Haenertsburg sun on Tuesday, January 22 2019. The learners came together to compete, chant, sing and dance for their houses.
Many boldly took on the challenge of representing their house in a discipline that is unfamiliar to them, all in the name of their team.
The new grade 8’s threw themselves into the day’s festivities and it is great to see some rising stars in our midst.
The trophy winners were as follows:
Vavasour Cup for Boys Open 1500m: David Pullinger McGaffin Trust Trophy for the Top Sprinter: Ethan Jones McGaffin Trust Relay Trophy: Orvis Cheerio Trust Trophy – Best Senior Middle Distance Runner: Emma Melville Kenney Trophy – Best Senior Boys Discus: Jackson Ndhlovu Kenney Trophy – Best Senior Girls Discus: Melike Naude Revelas Trophy – Best Boys Hurdler: Devon Coad Revelas Trophy – Best Girls Hurdler: Lia Revelas Loubser Trophy – Junior Victor Ludorum: Devon Coad Loubser Trophy – Junior Victrix Ludorum: Heidi Katzke Loubser Trophy – Senior Victor Ludorum: Ethan Jones Loubser Trophy – Senior Victrix Ludorum: Lia Revelas Stanford Lake College Spirit Trophy: Loomis The Zamparini Family Trophy – Winning House: Fenwick
