Regatta really oarsome
|03/07/2018||Posted by admin under 南京夜网||
IT has been many years since Spinifex State College could hold its annual Canoe Regatta because of drought conditions in Mount Isa.
But with Lake Moondarra flourishing after rainfall this year, it was all systems go for the students and teachers on Sunday.
Teams of six raced around buoys with three laps in total covered by the paddlers in a fun-filled relay-style event to build camaraderie and mateship within the students and staff from the junior and senior campus.
The North West Canoe Club members helped out by patrolling the water for safety as more than 60 paddlers got among the action.
TeacherKristen Curd, who organised the day, said she was impressed to see the students from both campuses interacting and rivalling staff teams on the water.
It is one of a few opportunities for the students to come together as one from both campuses.
There was only one capsize on the day, by a team of teachers – a moment which was enjoyed by the students.
Race placings were:
1: Brian Silayo, Oliver Desvaux, Khrystal Santos, Jessie Pitkin, Kody Donnelly and Danica Crebbin
2: Anthony Bulgarelli, Korey Trott, Quiana Busch, Warren King, Callum Barr and Caleb Pigliafiori
3: Kira Macleod, Rosie Yalinatoba, Hingaia Hahipene, Jessica Griffin and Nivedita Chetty
