SGHS had 8 students attend the SISS Athletics Championships over the weekend with some stand out results.

Isla McCallum set a new SISS Championships record of 11.99m winning the U14 girls shotput, Carlie Scherp won both the U14 girls Discus and Hammer throw while also placing third in the shot put.
Kennedy Taylor continued her winning form with a win in the Open 2000m Steeplechase, while Ashlynn Scherp broke three records – the 16 yr, 17 yr and 18yr women’s Discus Throw finishing third in the Senior girls competition.
