St Luke’s Jock Walton was awarded the under-15 boys champion and the open boys champion was claimed by his teammate, James Forster-Reed.
Taylor Sparks was named the under-15 girls champion, with the St Luke’s girls team winning the shield for the best overall girls’ score.
St Luke’s College secured third place in the carnival overall, close behind Austin Cove and Serpentine College.
Head of health and physical education Kogi Govender said St Luke’s College students participated with enthusiasm and competitiveness in all the events.
“St Luke’s College students look forward to participation in their fiercely competitive arena and being exposed to a variety of challenging competitors,” she said.
