Sixty of GCC’s best athletes have competed to become Glasshouse District Champions for a second year running! The team finished 30 points in front of St Michael’s who were second and Elimbah State School placed third.
Some students had trained hard for this competition and others relied on natural talent, but many won ribbons and several became Age Champions or Runners Up Age Champions.
Lainey Grieve became the 12 Girls Age Champion tying on points with Ruby Orchard from St Michael’s College. Lainey had a very busy and successful day competing in six events and qualifying for the Regional Championships in all six. She won the discus and shot put events, placed second in the 100m, 200m and high jump and finished third in the long jump. What a fantastic day for her on the track and in the field. Amy Trevan also competed well, gaining second in discus and high jump and third in shot put and 200m and was Runner Up Age Champion.
Jaiden Ward had a great day jumping a huge 4.22m to win the 11 boys long jump. He also won the 100m, placed second in the 200m and came third in the high jump. This gained him enough points to make him 11 boys Runner Up Age Champion.
Max Cashin also had a great day winning the 100m and 200m races and placing third in shot put and fourth in long jump. These placings gave him the Runner Up Age Champion title for the 10 year boys.
Lily Breen has just started at GCC and was a great asset to our team with two fantastic personal performances. She won the 10 girls 800m and also won the high jump to give her enough points to become Girls Runner Up Age Champion for 10 year girls.
It was great to have lots of parents cheering the athletes on and supporting the whole team. Everyone competed really strongly and it was fantastic to see so many GCC students doing their very best in every event. Eighteen students were selected to compete at the Sunshine Coast Regional Championships which will be held at the end of August. Winning the Championship was a real team effort.
