Local athletes off to Townsville
PROSERPINE State High School hosted the Whitsunday Secondary School Athletics Championships last week.
This was the first step in representative sport from which successful athletes were selected for the North Queensland Trials to be held in Townsville tomorrow (Friday, September 6).
Gorgeous weather, excellent facilities and gallons of enthusiasm were on display and the team competition was fierce between Proserpine and Bowen High Schools.
The southerners did better than the smaller schools.
Whitsunday Christian College finished ahead in this contest although St Catherine’s deserve congratulations on the efforts of their Year 8’s.
Age champions medals were shared among all the schools.
