School ath­letes shine

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

RUN­NING, cheer­ing, sprint­ing, hop step and jump­ing – it beats school­work any day.

Mun­dub­bera State P-10 Se­condary In­ter­house Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val was held last Fri­day and stu­dents ar­rived at the school early for warm ups, stretch­ing and rub downs.

The school is di­vided into two sports houses, Cooro­man and Goola.

The only record bro­ken on the day was in the girls’ 14-years 100m sprint when Shawna Pope smashed the record with a time of 13.16s to beat the old record of 13.3s.

Shawna said she thought the day went well.

“All the events were very close and the par­tic­i­pa­tion of stu­dents was very high, ”she said.

“I am happy with my sprint­ing to­day. I just wish I could have jumped a lit­tle bet­ter.”

Cooro­man house fin­ished first with 661.5 points, Goola house fin­ished with 617.5, and the Jump­ing Tro­phy and Run­ning Tro­phy both went to Cooro­man.

The day ended with some of the most awe­some war cries ever heard.
