Athletics star destined for State Championships

U12 Anjelica Geurts with Coach Bill give her silver medal win a thumbs up

U12 Anjelica Geurts with Coach Bill give her silver medal win a thumbs up

After a postponed SunCoast Regional competition due to wet track and change of venue, the Cooloola Coast Little Athletics Centre came away victorious!

All athletes that travelled to Noosa to compete at the Garriween Sports Centre gave it their all and many placed high on the tally board.

U7 Gemma Campbell aced her 70m and 100m heats, U12 Logan Smith just missed a place in the shot put, but the stand out was U12 Anjelica Geurts who took home Bronze in the 100m and Silver in the long jump.

Coach Bill had his work cut out, mentoring Anjie from fifth place in her 100m heats to third in the final. Anjie now has a place in the State Championships to be held in Townsville on March 23 and 24. Well done everyone and keep training!

The 2018-19 season is almost over with medal presentation and break up on Saturday March 30. Athletes are in the running for the Superstar Standout Awards and the Athlete of the Year Award.
