The 2020 SA Schools Championships was held at Thorndon Park on Friday 28 August, postponed from the original date in May (and we all know why). It was a fabulous day, with great weather, and many enthusiastic students, although with lower numbers than previous years as schools were cramming many postponed sporting events into Term 3!
And all; courses can be reviewed here in Route Gadget
The points in the schools trophies were as follows:
Primary Schools - Williams Trophy -
1) Goodwood PS with 65 points
2) Hawthorndene PS with 26 points
3) Stirling East PS with 23 points
Secondary Schools - Wale trophy-
1) Heathfield HS with 45 points
2) Trinity College with 14 points
3) Marryatville HS with 12 points.
