Let’s Go Sabres!
On the 15th of May, our CISSA Track & Field athletes put their spikes on for the first time in 3 years.

Despite being inexperienced, our young Sabre athletes stood out and blew the competition away with their speed, strength and determination (even cheering!)

Boys Grade 6 800m race Akira went head-to-head with a student from another school. They were close until they started their sprint finish with 300m to go. Our young Sabre managed to outrun the opponent to cross the finish line first, making it a very thrilling race.
Congratulations to everyone on their efforts and their many successes. Thank you also to the parents who were able to make it out and spectate. We truly hope that these young athletes had a fun afternoon and that they will continue their journey with track and pass the torch on to the younger generation. They are all an inspiration, and we hope that this is just the start of bigger things to come.
Keep that Sabre Spirit up!
