District Athletics:

Around 50 of our athletes aged 10 – 18 travelled to Griffith University to compete against the Hinterland District Schools. This year was our most successful year in terms of individual results and overall school success. In an average year we have three to four students make it through to Regional Athletics, with this year we had 11 students make it through to Regionals. The school Athletics Program is starting to take shape and some serious results will occur over the coming years. The most outstanding results over the two days of competition were:

Amy Williams Yr 4 won 10 year girls Discus
Jackson Davis Yr 10 won 15 year boys 400m and 200m
Cooper Miller Yr 7 won 12 year boys 100m and 200m
Ethan Christie Yr 9 won 15 year boys 100m
Sam Elliott Yr 12 won 17 boys Discus and Shot Put
Adam Stasch Yr 8 won 14 boys Discus and Shot Put
Riyani Kettle Yr 11 won 16 girls Javelin
Erik Stasch Yr 10 won 15 Boys Discus and High Jump
Ashleigh Cooper Yr 12 won 17 girls Triple Jump

As you can see this is an outstanding performance by our students. Most of the students who placed 1st or 2nd are now off to compete at the South Coast Regional Track and Field meet. Some second place results are awaiting another meet before they can be announced. We wish these students all the best for this meet.
