Several students from GCCC have excelled in the Regional Little Athletics Championships held recently at Skippy Park and have qualified for the Queensland Little Athletics Championships to be held in March in Brisbane.
Fifteen students competed in the Regional Champs with seven qualifying for the State Champs after beating many talented athletes from all over the Sunshine Coast.
Athletes who made it to State Champs and the events that they made it in are:
Under 9: Cassidy Ferris – 60M Hurdles 3rd, Shot Put 4th; Shelby Daunt – 700M Walk 1st
Under 10: Jaylah Daunt – Long Jump 4th, Shot Put 1st, Discus 3rd; Laura Vobr – Shot Put 2nd, Discus 2nd
Under 13: Ryan Sauer – Shot Put 2nd
Under 14: Andie Omara-Little – 100M 4th, 80M Hurdles 2nd, 200M Hurdles 1st, Discus 1st, Javelin 1st; Tom Dwan – 200M Hurdles 3rd
All these students are members of Glasshouse Little Athletics Club who meet every Friday night at Skippy Park for coaching and competition in all athletics events. No experience is needed and it is great to see many GCCC students enjoying athletics and friendships made at the club.
Rebekah White also competed last weekend in the 2013 Queensland Junior State Championships and ran well to comfortably win the Under 20 Women’s 100m Hurdles. Congratulations Rebekah.
Jaylah Daunt, Laura Vobr, Cassidy Ferris and Shelby Daunt also competed in Redcliffe over the weekend at their Twilight Pentathlon Event. It was a great day with Jaylah and Laura competing against 22 girls in their age group but both did so well. Jaylah came 5th and Laura came 8th. Laura also showed her strength and technique when she threw a record in discus of 20.09m.
Cassidy and Shelby had nine girls to compete against, and achieved fantastic results. Cassidy won the event and Shelby finished 3rd. Well done girls.
