Records broken at ES Marks Carnival

Kaitlyn Downey, Convenor of Track and Field

3000m Record smashed by Year 12 student Charles McGrath

We had an awesome carnival our at ES Marks on Saturday and despite the very hot weather, we had a school record broken. Charles McGrath (Year 12) went out to beat his coach Jeremy Roff’s old 3000m record of 8:58:53 held since 2001. Charles went out and smashed that record by over 10 seconds with a time of 8:47:30. This was done with the support of one of Charles’ training partners from Cranbrook, Drew Fryer, who ran as his pacer for the first 2km to give Charles the best chance of breaking our school record. The support these two students have shown each other throughout the season is a true example of good sportsmanship and is something we should be very proud of.
