Success at Qld Athletic Championships- Go the Blues!
Last weekend two of our students, Nathalie Avery and Natasha Rudder competed in the Qld Athletic Championships. Natasha was striving to get a qualifying time for the Australian Junior Athletic Championships to be held in Sydney at the end of February. Under trying conditions where the track was reversed because of strong headwinds, Natasha ran a great race but was unsuccessful in achieving the time required. She will now focus on the Oceania Regional Championships to be held in Fiji later in the year.
Nathalie Avery competed in the Girls U15 100m sprint. After a strong performance in her heat, Nathalie was the fastest qualifier for the final. In the final she had an excellent start and led the field to take first place, adding the Queensland Championship to her NSW championship. She will now focus on the NSW Little A’s State Championships to be held in mid-March, followed by the Australian Junior Athletic Championships to be held at the end of March. Erica and Megan Tillman will also be competing in these championships.
