Ice Dragons take comp

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS | GOOD MORNING FRASER COAST -

THEY may be called the Ice Dragons but they left the tracks red hot when they pow­ered through and won this year’s Fraser Coast Tech­nol­ogy Chal­lenge Pri­mary School Push­cart com­pe­ti­tion.

The team of 10 from St Mary’s pri­mary school started train­ing in early term three, train­ing twice per week. Man­ager of the Ice Dragons, An­drea Ros­siter, said the team had a slow run in the be­gin­ning but it didn’t take them long to bounce back.

“These kids went from hav­ing quite slow run times in the 50 and 100 me­tre re­lays, hit­ting all of the cones in the ob­sta­cle course and tak­ing over 16 min­utes to de­con­struct then re­assem­ble their cart to win­ing the 100m, com­ing 2nd in the 50m by less than one sec­ond, win­ning the ob­sta­cle course and not hit­ting any cones and de­con­struct­ing and re­assem­bling their cart in un­der five min­utes,” she said.

“The chil­dren worked so well to­gether as a team and were also very en­cour­ag­ing to­wards other com­peti­tors, cheer­ing them on and con­grat­u­lat­ing them on their ef­forts.”

The team is now look­ing for­ward to be­ing a part of the 24 hour HPV race next year.

“Big thanks to the staff at St Mary’s, es­pe­cially Ted Michie for all of their sup­port and as­sis­tance,” she said.
