After our school Athletics Day which is always a highlight for the whole school, the Otago Secondary School Athletics Championships were held in March.
Logan Park had 20 athletes competing with some impressive results.
Nico Alvarez Rey Virag was first in the U15 800m and came second in the 400m.
Zack Hibbert continues to dominate this season winning the U16 Hammer and coming 3rd in Discus. His younger brother Jake Hibbert proved he is an emerging talent, coming first in the U14 Hammer and first in Discus in his first competitive outing.
April McMillan Perkins won the U16 Javelin and Bruno McMillan came second in the U14 Javelin.
Rebecca Dalphin was second in the Senior 3000m and George Fisher second in the U16 3000m and 3rd in 1500m.
Another highlight was the support the Logan Park team gave to each other in particular to our Para athletes.
Josiah Hola was first in both the Senior Para 100m and Shotput and Bradley Whipp was second in both the Senior Para 100m and Shotput.
The Otago Futsal Championships were held in March with four teams competing. We had girls and boys teams competing in the Junior and Senior sections. Our Logan Park Senior Boys team played very well. A huge thanks to teacher and coach James Govan who was overseeing 13 futsal teams as well as training the Senior Boys to attend the now postponed National tournament.
Sean and Cole Brooks-Adams competed in several online indoor rowing competitions during lockdown, including the Eric Murray Invitational event and the One Minute Challenge World Competition. Both boys achieved impressive results.
We're looking forward to the challenge of resuming sports in an altered format after the Covid-19 situation.
