Five students from A.B. Paterson College competed in the All Schools Regional Aquathlon Trials for the South Coast last Tuesday at Evandale Park. These students were Cate Ellwood, Aveline Rounsley, Jake Maddison and Jonas Longhurst from Year 5 and Riley Grimmer from Year 4.
Over 53 boys and 30 girls all aged 10 and 11 from all Gold Coast based schools competed in a race format over a 1km run, 200m open water swim and another 1km run. They were all competing for the top spots to make the South Coast team and to represent their school. This was the section for the State Championships which will be held in Hervey Bay next February.
Well done to all competitors! It was a fun morning with fast and tough races.
Special congratulations to Cate, Jake and Jonas for making it into the South Coast Team.
We wish you and all the South Coast Team best of luck for the State Championship.
