Lo­cal ath­letes off to Townsville

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

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.
