South Grafton sent over 15 students to the North Coast Regional Athletics Carnival at Lismore. Many of them will now be going onto Sydney for the State championships. Nathalie Avery won the 100 and 200 metre events and Natasha Rudder placed 1st in 100 metres, 2nd in 200m opens and 3rd in long jump.
Travis O’Connor was 2nd in 3000 metre walk. Erica Tillman won the triple jump and placed 2nd in the long jump. Megan Tillman was 2nd in javelin, Jamal Laurie placed 3rd in high jump and Chloe Ferguson-Gardiner was 3rd in discus. Other notables were Cate Duroux with 3rd in high jump and Tristan De Bono with 2nd in shotput.
After all of those events, SGHS then blew away the opposition in the relays- 1st for 13 years boys (Noah Armstrong, Jacob Hearfield, Angus and Jonas Waern), 2nd for 13 years girls (Brooke Corbett, Nathalie Avery, Lilly Harris and Kya Broughton) and 3rd in the girls open relay (Natasha rudder, Megan and Erica Tillman and Janai Ross). Well done to all our athletes!
