On Wednesday 20th July, 19 students from the school participated for the first time in the interschool ‘Indoor Rock Climbing Competition’ at Bayside Rock in Carrum Downs. The day saw our students work in groups of three or four helping each other climbing and belaying. Students had two hours to complete as many climbs worth as many points as possible. The top eight students in each age group then went through to the finals.
We just missed out on competing in the finals in most categories – not bad considering how little training out team was able to complete. Joel Hepner & Aonghus McNamara, both from Year 12, fought hard for the senior title, with Joel getting a 3rd place.
Notable climbers for the three age groups were:
|7/8||Boys||Joel Barnes & Riley Chen||Tied 9th|
The highest point scorers for RSC for the day were Seb Fitzgerald (21.5) and Ethan Andersen (20) – a great effort and up against tough, experienced competitors. A great day was had by all and we are looking forward to competing again next year.
