Recently eight of our Spartan Junior Athletes competed at the Queensland All Schools Athletics Championships (10 to 14 years) in Brisbane. In very hot and windy conditions throughout the event, our Spartans performed very well, especially after several of them had also competed in the very successful Junior APS Carnival only two days earlier and were very fatigued.

Overall, our Spartans won two Gold and two Bronze medals and achieved personal bests. The two days were very long, and the athletes prepared well for each of their competitions.

Ava Stephens – (u15) 90mH 4th 14.66sec PB; Long Jump 4th 5.04m PB; Shot Put 10th 8.06m; 100m 13.39sec PB; 200m 28.23sec PB.

Noku Mhlanga – (u14) Triple Jump 10th 9.31m; 100m 14.39sec

Sophie Colahan – (u12) 100m 12th 14.33sec; 200m 10th 31.03sec


Cru Scott – (u15) 1500m 3rd Bronze 4.22min; 3km 3rd Bronze 9.17min

Ryan Hisco – (u15) 400m 8th 56.58sec; 800m DQ (5th 2.09min)

Patrick Kelly-Correa – (u14) Javelin 10th 25.88m PB; Long Jump 3.93m

Roneel Khatri – (u14) High Jump 10th 1.40m PB 

Aden Webber – (u13) Discus 1st Gold 41.89m PB; Shot Put 1st Gold 12.27m PB

Aden Webber, Cru Scott and Ava Stephens all had stand out performances in more than one event. Winning medals and placing in the top few in the entire state is an amazing achievement and having only a single competition in the lead up to these Championships, shows us the commitment to their training they have had over the past months. Congratulations to all our Spartan athletes!

The next major competition on the athletics calendar is the upcoming Queensland Multi Event Championships on December 18 to 19. At this event we will have approximately 12 of our elite young Spartans competing against the best in the state in either the Heptathlon (seven events) or the Decathlon (10 events). If you are interested in participating, please contact me as soon as you can.
