South Coast Regional Athletics Trials

Congratulations to Sian Fennell and Callum Janetzki who competed in the South Coast Regional Athletics Trials from 11 – 12 September. Both students performed exceptionally well with Sian achieving 1st in the 1500m and 2nd in the 800m, and Callum achieving 1st in the 3000m and 3rd in the 1500m. Sian has qualified for the State Championships in both of her events, while Callum has qualified for the 3000m.

Please see below for Callum’s reflection:

“On the 11th and 12th of September, I, along with many other QAHS students, attended the South-Coast Athletics championships held at the Griffith University Athletics track. I competed in two events; the 16 year boys 3000 and 1500 metre races, where I was happy to place 1st and 3rd respectively. Personally, I was pleased with my results both ranking and time wise, as I achieved my best ever rankings along with personal best times in both events. It was also very uplifting to receive support from fellow QAHS students who were present at the championships.”

The Queensland State Athletics Championships will be held from 25 – 28 October. The whole of QAHS congratulates both Sian and Callum for their outstanding achievements and wishes them the best for the upcoming State Competition.
