RUSSELL TRI­UMPHS

Central and North Burnett Times - - READ -

A sea of pur­ple and or­ange con­verged on the School’s oval last Thurs­day and Fri­day to con­test the an­nual Monto High School Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val. Dur­ing the weeks lead­ing up to the 2-day car­ni­val, a num­ber of lunch-time events were held, with Russell begin­ning the day with a 3-point lead ahead of ri­vals Cook. The com­pe­ti­tion was fierce with both teams bat­tling it out on the track and field. A num­ber of records were bro­ken through­out the car­ni­val in the both track and field events, with the most no­table be­ing a track record that had stood for 32 years. Whilst the com­pe­ti­tion was hot on the track, there was plenty of ac­tion hap­pen­ing with the nov­elty events and the Team war cries, all con­tribut­ing points to­wards to the Nov­elty Shield. After a hard fought bat­tle across the events, Russell House grabbed vic­tory on the day, with Cook House win­ning the Nov­elty Shield. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all stu­dents who com­peted and sup­ported their teams and a huge thankyou to the staff and vol­un­teers who as­sisted in mak­ing the event a suc­cess.
