With over 50 students competing in this year’s SSWA Secondary Triathlon event, we had one of our biggest teams ever. In hot and windy conditions, all students, whether participating in a team or as individuals, competed at a high standard and resulted in us achieving some excellent results across all categories.
It was an awesome effort by all members of the St Mark's Team, and, in particular, those students who doubled up in both the Individual and Team events. Thanks to the North Coast Triathlon Club and Triathlon WA for providing some expert knowledge and guidance from their experienced coaches in the lead up to the event.
In their final SSWA Triathlon event representing St Mark's, our Senior competitors, Daniel Buis, Rhianna Hepburn, and Madison Toovey, have represented the School at an exceptionally high level for a number of years, and we thank them for their contribution and long term commitment to the Team.
