Records tumbled and Xavier House took home the trophy and title of 'Champions' at the 2023 Inter-House Athletics Carnival.

On Friday 9 June 2023 St Peter Claver College held its annual Inter-House Athletics Carnival at the Bill Paterson Oval in Limestone Park.

The glorious winter's day made for great competition conditions and a spectacular show of track and field prowess. So much so, 18 records across multiple ages and events broken.

Along with the usual program of Athletics events, House Captains and staff competed in relays, and House spirit was shown and judged on war cry enthusiasm and best dressed House.

Program Leader – Sport, Sarah Cassin congratulated everyone who attended the Athletics Carnival.

“The weather turned it on for what was one of our most successful Inter-House Athletics Carnivals to date. Thank you to our staff, students and House Leaders, and congratulations to Xavier House for taking out the win in what was an extremely close race for the Championship Cup."

The Inter-House Athletics Carnival concludes Claver's Inter-House sport for the year.
