Whilst we do aim to follow UKA rules, this is a schools' event and the competitors' experience and safety is our priority. Therefore, we reserve the right to be.

I fully agree with the government decision to drop the opening and closing ceremonies. But there is no doubt that the winners should have been awarded medals. Seriously, how much a medal will cost?

I believe had the government or the education department taken the initiative to talk to the officials they would have happily agreed to officiate in the state meet without taking a single rupee. A flexible or pragmatic approach would have resulted in the athletes getting ample rest and also more competitors getting a chance to showcase their skills. I can feel the disappointment of the youngsters. The school meet is the first step to excellence on the sporting arena.

I have fond memories of competing in school meets. This year, Caiden, Ryan and Thomas were able to practice some with The Whetstone braves wrestling team. This experience was invaluable and we thank head coach Tom Jones and the Braves for having us down for a few practices.

We concluded our season with a pizza victory celebration get together with the cheerleaders. A special thanks to the cheerleaders, their coaches, our assistant coach Ron Heath. Our seniors this year are Asia, Ryan and Thomas.
