Co-curricular Student Achievers
The u14 and u16 girls continue to play well in the South west 7s competition. The u14 girls attack has clicked, but they do need to work on the tackle and defensive breakdown. The u16 girls won one and lost one on Tuesday night. Their all round game is improving, but some simple errors are gifting the opposition too much possession. Boys 7s kick off shortly.
The senior mixed team continues to improve in the local Warwick Touch competition. Coach Mrs Lauren Fowler is happy with the team’s performance but continues to work on their fitness and skill levels under fatigue. The SCOTS Junior Touch Competition has been postponed the last two weeks due to the heavy rain. We are looking forward to kicking off this week.
Darling Downs Athletics – Last week Sam Wainwright (Year 7), Riley Wainwright (Year 5) and Tanner Henley (Year 5) competed at the state 10-12 years championships in Cairns. Sam finished ninth overall in the multi-event, an improvement from last year’s position of 15th. While Sam was unable to progress to the semi-finals, he secured a personal best in the long jump. Riley was unable to achieve a personal best in his long jump event, however, finished the highest placed Darling Downs competitor in his age group. Tanner competed in the discus and although he did not place, he thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will no doubt be back again next year.
Well done boys for your commitment to your sport!
