Josh leads the way in ath­let­ics

Campaspe News - - SPORT -

ON MON­DAY, Septem­ber 18, nine stu­dents from the Rochester Pri­mary School trav­elled to Bendigo to com­pete in the 2017 divi­sion ath­let­ics car­ni­val.

The stu­dents qual­i­fied for this event by pro­duc­ing some out­stand­ing re­sults at the zone ath­letic car­ni­val in Echuca.

The stan­dard of the com­pe­ti­tion was ex­cel­lent, with many tal­ented and well trained chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing in all events.

Our stu­dents did the school proud, pro­duc­ing some ter­rific re­sults.

In­di­vid­ual re­sults were as fol­lows: Josh Murray: first in dis­cus and sec­ond in shot­put. Reed Hock­ing: fourth in the hur­dles fi­nal and fourth in dis­cus. Giselle Craw­ford: fourth in dis­cus. Alan­nah Weeks: fifth in her 200m heat. De­clan Pearse: 11th in the 1500m. Nate Ras­mussen: fifth in his 200m heat and ninth in the 1500m. Trey White: fourth in dis­cus and fifth in long jump. Char­l­ize Weeks: fifth in her 200m heat. Natalie Moon: sixth in the 1500m.

A spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions to Josh Murray who qual­i­fied for both shot­put and dis­cus to go through to the re­gional fi­nals which will be held early next term.

Suc­cess there would see him qual­ify for the state fi­nals.

Thanks to all the par­ents for driv­ing the chil­dren to Bendigo and sup­port­ing them through­out the day.
