The Interhouse Athletics Meeting took place on 8 & 9 August.
The green and the orange were represented on the field by our very own Kulula and Mango airlines. The airline pilots led their teams onto the field in true airforce style. The competition remained a fight for dominance on the field but it was finally Morris that took the winning trophy with a total of 1761 points – 29 points ahead of Murray.
Morris also made an almost clean sweep of the trophies of the day: Junior Victrix was awarded to Morris 10 year athlete Kayla Witthoft for her achievement of 3454 ASA points for her 1200m, 100m, 80m, High and Long Jump events. Senior Victrix was awarded to Morris 17 year athlete, Elsi Haux for her achievement of 3168 ASA points for her 3000m, 1500m, 800m, 400m and 200m events. Senior Victor Ludorum was awarded to Morris 19 year athlete, Daniel Bosman for his achievement pf 2882 ASA points for his 3000m, 1500m, 800m, 400m and 100m. Murray athlete, Sphelele Memela, 10 years, was awarded the Junior Victor for his achievement of 2632 ASA points for his 1200m, 100m, High and Long Jump and Turbo Javelin events.
The event was smart, memorable, colourful and enjoyable. Kulula and Mango have been etched into the memories of the DSS athletes.
