Queensland Athletics Championships

Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 March saw hundreds of athletes compete at the Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre in the Queensland Athletics Championships.

Sian Fennell competed in both the U20 800m and 1500m, racing as part of the Gold Coast Victory team and winning both races. She completed the two laps of the track in just 2.14 minutes and the 1500m in a very fast 4.43 minutes. Placing third in the 1500m race was alumni student Stephanie Hall with a time of 4.45 minutes.

Michael Hall, also racing for the Gold Coast Victory, competed in the U17 1500m winning his race in only 4.12 minutes.

Both Sian and Michael qualify for the 2019 Australian Athletics Championships at Sydney Olympic Park in April, an amazing feat and we wish them luck in their respective races.

Lily Buchanan, also racing in a Gold Coast Victory singlet, competed in the U16 800m race finishing 5th with a time of 2.15 minutes.
