Interhouse Athletics 2020
Updated: May 7
Stanford Lake College’s annual inter-house athletics day took place on Saturday, 18th January. The “misty mountain” stayed true to its name, as the day kicked off with the track shrouded in mist. The weather did not deter the anxious competitors, as they walked out proud in their house colours, chanting house songs and eager to push themselves on both the track and on the field.
Despite the damp track and generally less than perfect conditions, four school records were broken on the day. David Ramalepe, a Grade 9 student who only joined the Stanford family a week before, managed to make his stamp on Stanford Lake College history, setting a new school record for U/15 Boys 100m, in a time of 11.94 seconds. Isabella Drewett set a new Girls U/16 Javelin record of 28.18m.
Additionally, Lia Revelas, managed to break two school records. In the Girls Open 100m, she set a new record of 13.19 seconds, whilst in the Girls Open 100m Hurdles she set a new record of 15.79 seconds (breaking her own record set in 2019 of 16.57 seconds).
