SA Schools Championships 2020

on .

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!

All results are available here – Overall and Splits

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-

2) Trinity College with 14 points
3) Marryatville HS with 12 points.
