Just before Christmas five young athletes from GCCC competed in the Queensland Little Athletics Relay Championships held in Brisbane. They had all qualified through their regions so were excited about competing at State level.
Laura Vobr and Jaylah Daunt teamed up to compete in the discus event which requires two club representatives to throw three times and then their best two throws are totalled to find the winners. Laura and Jaylah were up amongst the best in the state and were very proud to win the bronze medal. Both girls threw very close to 20m which is fantastic for 10 and 11 year olds!!
Jaylah was also selected in the medley relay but had to pull out due to an ankle injury but young Cassidy Ferris was brought in to replace her. Nine-year-old Cassidy ran the 400m in the medley relay for the Glasshouse District clubs 11 year girls team. What an effort Cassidy!
Tom and Nick Dwan also competed at the championships and represented their club really well. Tom threw in the U16 shotput placing 9th and also competed in the longjump and discus event. Nick ran in the U12 4 x100m and medley relay event where his Glasshouse team placed 6th.
