Students from Knox broke three records at the Combined Associated Schools (CAS) Athletics Championships at Sydney Olympic Park on Thursday evening and finished third overall.

Year 8 student Lewis Clabburn broke the 14 years 200m sprint record with a time of 23.63 seconds, while Year 7 boy Austin Thomson broke the 13 years 800m run record with a time of 2 min 10.59 seconds.

The 14 years relay team of Ben Shariat, Lewis Clabburn, Ben Burton and Edward Yoong also broke the 4x100m CAS record with a time of 46.06 seconds.

“It was a tremendous night with Knox boys winning 14 of their races up against some tough competition from the other CAS schools,” said Chuck Ardron, Head of the Knox Academy of Sport.

“It was a terrific atmosphere, with our team cheered on by about 500 Knox students and nearly 200 parents and supporters.”

The overall winner of the points competition was Barker College, followed by Trinity Grammar in second and Knox in third position.
