Exceptional athletic efforts at regional and state levels



On Thursday 10 October the College was represented by fifteen students in twenty-seven events at the Loddon Mallee Regional Athletics Carnival which was held at the Bendigo Athletics Track.

Loddon Mallee Regionals

As the day progressed it became obvious that the Catherine McAuley College (CMC) Team was full of class and they were making a big impression.

Across the day the team won a total of twenty-six medals from twenty-seven events – an outstanding achievement in itself, eighteen first place medals, five second place and three third place.

It was a sensational effort by everyone, with every student who competed receiving a medal.  These fantastic results enabled the CMC Team to finish fifth overall from a total of forty-three schools.

Congratulations to all participants and we wish the very best of luck to all of the students who will now compete at the State Finals Day in Melbourne on Friday 18 October.

State Athletics

After the outstanding results from the Loddon Mallee Regional Day our squad went into the State Competition with confidence, while mindful of the jump in class of athletes.  The day was always going to be tough, especially with the addition of the very strong and blustery winds.  All of our students made a fantastic effort and were incredible ambassadors for Catherine McAuley College.

Logan Barker ran exceptionally well in the 100m sprint and finished on the podium in third place and Jorja Morrison finished fourth in her 100m event, both outstanding achievements. With the rest of the team running, jumping or throwing well, it was the experience of making it to the State Finals that was the highlight.  Congratulations to all, you were amazing and should be very proud of your efforts.
