During the holidays whilst most students were relaxing, many of our Spartan Athletes attended regular training sessions and competitions. With Club Shield Competitions and State Championships occurring nearly every weekend our students were very busy travelling up and down to Brisbane.

Some results of note are as follows.

2020 - T1 - W3 - athletics stock.jpg

Queensland Multi Event Championships – held over two days comprising of seven events each.

Jess Velloza – Bronze Medal U17 Girls Heptathlon
Jake Iles – 4th place U14 Boys Heptathlon
Aidan Mackie – 6th place U14 Boys Heptathlon

For all three of these students it was their first ever State Championship level competition. The experience gained from competing over two days, against many well-trained athletes was invaluable and I am sure it will benefit them greatly in the year ahead.

Queensland 3000m Track Championships – Held at Queensland State Athletics Centre.

Indie Seccombe – Bronze Medal u18 (10.07min)
Starr Scott – Bronze Medal u17 (10.15min)

Over the coming weeks we are preparing for the House Cross Country (Friday 21 February); the Queensland State Championships (5 to 8 March); and the Australian Championships in Sydney (21 to 29 March) for several of our Elite Athletes at Somerset College.

Cross Country and Athletics training is in full swing this term so please check the Training Schedule on Schoolbox and come along and support the Spartan Athletics and Cross Country Programme. Open to everyone who wants to learn how to Run, Jump and Throw and be the best version of YOU!
