The weekend before last, our U15 Girls Athletics team tasted the highs and lows of sport in one drama packed day. Competing in the Queensland Schools Knockout competition, for the right to represent Queensland at the National Titles in Melbourne, in December, the six girls turned in a powerhouse display to street the field of the best athletics schools in Queensland and win by a large margin.
They were duly awarded the Gold Medals as Queensland Champions as seen in the picture below. Unfortunately the elation turned to disappointment when a late protest against one of our relay changeovers was upheld, meaning a DQ in that event, and a subsequent drop to 5th place. It was a devastating moment for such a talented team, but they can hold their heads up high knowing they were clearly the best team in the state. A big thank you to Mr Ferris for preparing such an outstanding group.
Congratulations also to the Open Girls team who performed well to place 5th overall.
Late News In... The Junior team has been offered a wildcard entry to the Australian Titles. An excellent outcome!
