Athletes make their mark

15th August 2017

Running:

Eloise Wellings has completed her Athletics World Championships campaign in London, where she was the fastest Aussie in the 10,000m with a time of 32:26 mins. She then backed up in the 5000m (a late edition to her shedule) where she posted a very respectable 15:25. Excpect to see Elzy back in the gym and on the roads as she now returns to the shire to resume her preperation for next year's commonwealth games! 

 

Kai Hammond put in an outstanding effort to finish 9th at the national school cross crountry championships in Tasmania. Kai's great run helping his NSW team take out gold in the relay. Alexia Kalamvokis defied the cold Tasmanian weather and a week of sickness leading in to post a brilliant 8th place in her race, with her team also winning the relay. We are beyond proud of you both for such gutsy efforts. Watch this space people.

 

A special mention to Chloe Gentle who has collected over 100 pairs of shoes to donate to those who need them most around the country. 

 

Well done to Mitch Hunt, Laura James and David Jones (DJ) who represented JA in the City2Surf. If you missed DJ on the day it could have something to do with his uniform choice... no comment... However, it was all for a very good cause as he raised over $3000 for The Steve Waugh Foundation to support children with rare diseases. 

 

Rugby:

Congratulations to Harry Dickens who is playing in the First IV for Newington College. Harry is still only in Year 11 but looks right at home mixing it with the big boys. A great reward for his hard work and dedication to training.
