Tocumwal completes sporting trifecta
Tocumwal Public School has completed the sporting trifecta, after it was crowned Zone Athletics Champion.
The school also had top results in swimming and cross country this year.
This is the first time that TPS has been successful in achieving such a feat.
While only one TPS student gained individual champions honours, it was the depth of talent that saw Tocumwal run out eventual winners.
Riley Thompson was awarded Senior Boys Champion after a consistent effort across six events.
The PSSA Finley Zone Athletics carnival was organised this year by Finley Public School, and attended by the 10 schools in the zone.
TPS sports coordinator Beth Hatty was ecstatic with the achievement.
“TPS has been strong in swimming for many years, but has tended to wax and wane with cross country and athletics,” Hatty said.
“We’ve not been able to have them align in a single year, until now.
“We are very proud of the effort and manner in which our students competed.”
