26 Jan Uplands Prep Inter-House Athletics
On Saturday the 26th of January Uplands Prep hosted its annual Inter-House Athletics meeting.
After a nervous start due to the weather conditions the day ran like clockwork.
Just after 08:00 it was the turn of the Foundation Phase athletes to show us what they have. After 34 events, it was the house of Fuller that came out tops.
At 10:00 the senior primary children had their chance to shine, and shine they did. After nearly 100 events, combining the pre events, participation points and the junior primary scores there was only 46 points separating 1st and 2nd place. The 2019 Inter-House Athletics champions are Ogilvie House, followed closely by Fuller and Webb House in 3rd. Not only did Ogilvie dominate the track but they also won the 1st of the spirit trophies for 2019.
This year saw 6 new records being set:
Daniel Rea in the u10 Boys Long Jump
Katelyn Kotze in the u10 girls 150m
Luyanda Mbatha in u10 girls 1200m
Keegan Drews in the u11 boys 1200m
