Hard work paying off
SEVEN Monto State High School and three Burnett State College students have been selected to represent Wide Bay in the Queensland State Secondary Schools Track and Field Titles in Brisbane.
The students are feeling confident ahead of the competition on October 25-28.
Stanley Grubb of Monto State High said he and his team-mates knew how they made this step to representative sport.
“Along with natural ability you really need to do the hard yards,” he said.
The contingent from Monto High is Malitha Cooper (long jump), Tyson Curtis (javelin, triple jump), Cassie Dorries (shot put), Stanley Grubb (5000m), Tia Netz (high jump), Ainsley Pointon (javelin) and Taylah Steger (discus).
