Achilles Cup

4 October 2022

On Thursday September 29, 50 boys represented PAC at the annual Achilles Cup Athletics Championships at Bridgestone Arena Salisbury.

Sadly, our House Athletics Carnival was cancelled due to wet weather a few weeks earlier, so it was a difficult task nominating a team of athletes with no current results to work from.

To the boys’ credit – most boys who were asked to compete committed to the day and we enjoyed a wonderful day of competition.

With low expectations due to recent cancellations we started the day with a ‘do our best attitude and fill every event’. We all surprised ourselves with our competitiveness and determination – and it was so pleasing to have PAC finish fourth overall on the day – close behind St Peter’s College, Trinity College and Immanuel College – all schools with large numbers and big athletics programs.

A huge thankyou to the boys for their efforts and to the staff who supported us on the day – Mr Brown, Mr Howson, Ms Adams and Mr Ritossa . It was also great to have quite a few parents there supporting their sons.

Congratulations to the Under 13 boys who came second overall in their division and to the Under 14s who finished third.
