Regional Athletics Success

Congratulations to our Athletes for their outstanding results at the South Coast Regional Trials over the last two days. Our students achieved some of their best results ever.  We had 14 Regional Champions who between them won 18 events. Alongside this were 18 second places and 8 thirds. Subsequently, we are looking at over 30 athletes gaining selection in the South Coast Regional team, which is an exceptional high percentage of the 48 athletes who represented Emmanuel.
A huge thanks and congratulations to Head Coach Mr David Reid whose international level of expertise, has added a whole new dimension to what was already one of the better programs on the Gold Coast.

Due to upcoming competitions over the first two weeks of term 4 the athletics club will be running a ‘skeleton’ coaching programme at school over this period.  Morning sessions will run through those weeks but no afternoon sessions (including this Friday).  Aileen will continue to take the triathletes on Wednesday afternoons.  The full athleticstraining programme will recommence on Monday 16/10/17.
