Shelby Daunt also excelled winning the bronze medal in the Under 11 girls 1100m race walk. Shelby trained regularly at the Caboolture club where they specialise in race walking.
There were also several other students who placed in the top six places. Laura Vobr placed 4th in discus and 5th in shotput against girls who broke State records!! Amy Trevan came 6th in discus and Sophie Trevan 5th in 200m hurdles. Lainey also placed 6th in the very competitive 70m final. Thomas Thow gained 5th place in U17 100m final and 6th in triple jump.
There were many outstanding athletes competing at the championships from all over Queensland so our students can be very proud of their achievements.
