State Athletics Championships

Congratulations to Emelia Surch on her selection in the Queensland Athletics Team to compete at the National Championships to be held in Cairns from December 7 – 9. Emelia will compete in the 90m and 200m Hurdles.

Over the past two weekends we have had 10 students represent the South Coast Region at the State Athletics Championships. The Junior (10-12 Years) Championships were held in Cairns and Seniors (13-19 years) in Brisbane.

Congratulations to all students involved. It is a major achievement to compete at the Championships in such a competitive state.

A big thank you to our Athletics coaches who have assisted throughout the season and a special thank you and congratulations to Dana Anders who has continued regular coaching in Term 3 and 4 with Hongkai who placed 3rd in his triple jump – an outstanding result!

Please see below a summary of results for the students who competed over the two weekends.
