2017 Parkview Public School athletics carnival one to remember

FREEMAN House recorded an against the odds win to savour at Parkview Public School’s recent athletics carnival.

Conducted over two days, the event proved to be a historic one, with several long-standing records falling.

Tamika also broke a record in the 11 years girls shot putt set by Renee Naumann in 2000, recording a throw of 8.43m.

Kristen Bradshaw took more than a second off the existing 11 years girls 200m record, previously held by Portia Marks (2015), stopping the clock at 32.39. All students took part across the event. 

Age champions were Tallis McMillan (junior boys), Amelia Irvin (junior girls), James Rourke (11 years boys), Tamika Rourke (11 years girls), Blake Ryan (senior boys) and Makayla Bradshaw (senior girls).
