Sibley house wins for sixth time
SIBLEY House has won the Centenary Shield for Clifton State Primary School athletics supremacy for a sixth successive year.
In the past six years, Sibley has won the athletics and swimming carnival double but there were many good performances by King House in the recent athletics carnival. The overall points tally was Sibley, 781, and King, 703.
The winning trophy was accepted by Sibley House captains Sarah Mantova and Braydon Saville.
Students from the Clifton State School will compete in the annual Central Downs Athletics Carnival on the morning of July 21 and all day on July 23 at the Allora State School.
The carnival is the chance for students to qualify for selection in the Central Downs team to compete at the Southern Downs Athletics Trials on August 10 at Briggs Oval in Warwick.
A Southern Downs team will then be selected to compete in the Darling Downs championships for the chance to make the regional team for the state championships.
Several records were broken at the Clifton house championships, which points to a strong representation from Clifton State School in athletics teams this year.
