The highly anticipated 58th National School Track & Field Championships 2017 recently came to a close.
55 athletes from Catholic Junior College and St. Joseph’s Institution, as well as 17 TeamFabian athletes set forth to represent their schools in the various events. We had a total of 44 finalists, with 19 of them attaining a podium position, and 12 winning gold for their school. We are delighted with the achievements they produced!
Throughout these 13 days, we saw countless heartbreaks and successes; there were performances that fell short of expectations as well as those which fulfilled them. Despite the various outcomes, do not discredit their efforts during the competition - they had sacrificed months, even years to train for this annual event.
It was also heart-warming to see friendships forged in the process, showing that competition is not just about winning. Everyone showed great camaraderie and brewed a strong sense of sportsmanship and healthy competition. With proper etiquette and respect, they will go far in all aspects of life, not just sports.
Moving on from this experience, we hope our athletes continue to train hard and give their best in whatever they do. May your journey in Track & Field be a fruitful and rewarding one.
Once again, congratulations to our athletes for your tremendous effort, and much appreciation to all parents and teachers for your unwavering support!
