This week we resume our Summer APS Season with Round 4 versus Emmanuel College and prepare for next week’s Athletics State Titles in Brisbane.

State Knock-out

Last weekend Somerset was the only school in the State to send teams to State Athletics Knock-out in every division at the University of Queensland. Competing against mostly large single-gender private schools, our athletes competed at a high level as they always do. Many thanks to our coaches and Ms Oppermann for helping on the day.

Visit from Borobi

Last week we had a visit from Borobi, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games mascot. A number of Junior School students were treated to the fun-filled session as he finally took on “Marty”, our Spartan mascot, for a race on the track. A photo finish indicated a dead-heat but Marty assures us he is not currently in full training and will be peaking in time for the Games.

Track and Field State Qualifiers

Practices continue every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.00am for those competing at the State Titles in Brisbane on 20 to 23 October.
