Jessie throws Mulgildie on map
MULGILDIE State School’s Jessie Moscrop has been selected to represent Wide Bay in the State School Athletics Championships in Cairns this weekend.
The 10-year-old is competing in discus and said she was excited, as she had never been north of Biloela. She travelled by road with her parents this week and arrived in Cairns on Tuesday.
Moscrop attributed her sporting success to her family and hard work.
“My father was a good thrower,” she said. “But I train every day.”
When she is not competing, Moscrop will spend her time sightseeing, swimming and discovering the rainforest.
