The final athletics fixture was held at St Stithians on Friday 1 November. Nine schools participated and the Brescia House athletes certainly stepped up their game!

They were also placed in all the 100m heats (A: Lisa Kibuuka 1st; B: Caitlyn Bouwer 1st; C: Yvonne Mthembu 2nd; D: Reabetswe Phume 1st), the 200m heats (A: Caitlin Bouwer 2nd; B: Lisa Kibuuka 2nd) and they came second in the 4x100m relay.
