The Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) squad recently competed in Round 3 of the Victorian HPV Series at Casey Fields. The duration of this event was 12 hours which allowed plenty of riding time for our students. We were fortunate to have over 40 parents, friends, supporters and former students come to the event and visit the 54 student strong squad in action. Many of our riders achieved personal best times throughout the race as they continue to develop their fitness and vehicle riding ability as the season progresses.
We achieved some fantastic results at this event, cementing our place as the leading school in the Victorian HPV Series with one round remaining.
In the Junior category we had one vehicle with all our available riders competing. 12 hours is a long way for our primary students but they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and completed the event with a top 10 finish, placing eighth. Well done to Mariska Matin, Maggie Flanders, Lauren Nelson, Emily Ford, James Pursell, Mikayla Delardes, Amber Flanders, Lincoln Clamp and Austin Schultz.
The final round of the Victorian HPV Series will be held on Saturday 12 October.
