Todd Murphy earned a silver medal in the 15 years boys’ high jump.
Chloe Richards also finished second in the high jump, narrowly missing out on gold in the 13 years girls’ competition.
Monique Connolly won bronze in the 17 years and over girls’ long jump.
The school also excelled in the relays.
The boys 14-15 years team of Tyler Carroll, Dylan Wood, James Angus and Ryan Griffin claimed a silver medal in the 4x100m relay while the school’s girls’ 12-13 years team of Molly Marsh, Caitlin Rosser, Chloe Richards and Clare Murphy also won silver.
The haul of eight medals is one of the school’s best representing the Bathurst Diocese at a NSWCCC athletics carnival.
“There’s a lot of potential there in terms of athletic ability in the group,” James Sheahan physical education teacher Kylie Jordan said.
“Jacki Jasprizza has done a lot of work with our relay teams and it’s shown in their efforts.”
