Darkinjung Barker students, Allan, Marlee, Chris and Eliza, have been awarded the gold medal in the CIS Mixed Relay event at the CIS Athletics Carnival held at Sydney Olympic Park in Sydney on 13 September.
Following the team's success at the recent IPSHA Athletics event, Darkinjung Barker qualified to compete in the small schools mix relay event at the CIS Competition. The team received their medals from Melinda Gainsford-Taylor, a three time Olympian and the current Australian Record Holder in the 200m. Melinda also held the Australian Record in the 100m, for some 20 years, until it was recently broken by Melissa Breen.
The team will now prepare for the NSWPSSA competition to be held in October.
