Well done to students and staff on Season 2 of APS sport. The effort contributed by all to weekly practise, and the energy committed to Friday sport is appreciated.
Candice McKenna, Athletics Coach and Head of Middle/Long Distance Athletics Programme
As part of the College’s reciprocal relationship with Ignition Athletics Club, a clinic for Somerset student athletes was held. Along with renowned coaches, our students welcomed star athletes to the track for this week's clinic.
Leanne Hinds-Smith (Ignition Athletics Club President and Queensland Athletics Board Member) as well as super coach Alison Fairweather (former Stawell Women’s Gift Winner) joined Alex Beck (sprinter, Australian representative and Somerset alumni) and super athlete Michelle Jenneke (hurdler, Australian Olympian and Commonwealth Games representative) to coach student athletes through circuits.
The aim of the clinic was to give our student athletes technical instruction and further knowledge of running mechanics.
We are so fortunate to have such great facilities at Somerset and are equally fortunate for the tremendous support that Ignition Athletics Club has for our athletes.
Kind regards and thank you to everyone involved.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
