Runaway success on track
ATHLETICS: Mundubbera State School had its annual athletics carnival, which turned out to be a huge success.
The winning house for primary school was O’Regan, while Goola won for the secondary school.
Primary school PE co-ordinator Lisa Whelan said the students performed wonderfully.
“The students ran really well. We finished way ahead of time which means they all put in a bit of effort, which is great,” Whelan said.
With the completion of the athletics carnival, some new talent has emerged.
“We’ve got a couple of up and coming in those younger years. We’ve got Grace Townsend and I’m looking forward to what she will develop into,” Whelan said.
“We’ve got Lee Enchelmaier, so he will be of interest in the next couple of years, and we’ve got others in the different cohorts that are progressively improving – it’s very good to see.
“We’ve got the likes of Sophie Zipf, who is an all-rounder so it will be interesting how she goes this year stepping up.”
The house results for
primary were Burnett on 78 points, Stuart Russell on 91 points, Leichardt on 92 points and O’Regan on 113 points.
For the secondary school, Goola received 127 points, Cooromon 114 points and the combined Goola, O’Regan, Leichardt score was
332 points. The combined Cooromon, Stuart Russell, Burnett teams finished on 283 points.
Several runners will now be selected to compete at a higher level against other schools.
“The first five boys and girls from each age group will be offered a place in our Mundubbera team to head off to Biggenden on Friday, April 28,” Whelan said.
“They’ll be participating in the North Burnett trials. From the trials, if any of them are successful it’s the Wide Bay then.”
