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.”
