Wellington College claim 51st McEvedy Shield title
Congratulations to our athletes and coaches on their successful win at the 94th McEvedy Shield Meet. The total points haul of 238 points was the most attained since 1996.
In its 94th year, the 95-point gap back to second-placed St Patrick's Town on 143 was a record for the event. Silverstream were third on 111, while Rongotai College gained 51 points. One of the two McEvedy records broken on the day, was by Wellington College's Tim Robinson in the U15 Javelin who threw 49.86m.
The deluge of Wellington College points was matched by a downpour of Wellington summer rain as Captain, Liam Webb collected the shield and he was hoisted onto the shoulders of his team-mates [pictured above].
McEvedy Captain, Liam Webb said, It's pretty special, especially winning in my final three years. The first two years Town won, so it's a good result for a lot of us and I'm happy to finish off McEvedy on a high. It's sad though to think that I won't be racing in it again, but I'll definitely be coming along to watch. It's such a great event to be at.
