Officials selected for national competition
EARLIER this month eight officials from the Whitsunday Athletics Club (WAC), who had been selected by Athletics Australia (AA), represented the region at the All Schools Championships in Townsville.
This is the national high schools athletics competition and there were over 1000 athletes representing every state and territory in Australia.
It was the first time that the competition has been held outside of a capital city and the club was proud to have had so many officials selected by AA to officiate at the competition.
WAC had the biggest percentage of representation of officials by any club in Australia and they were all thrilled to be involved in the national competition.
OFFICIAL DUTY: Whitsunday Athletics Club officials Katrina Hinschen, Lars Hansen, Kimberley and Laura Hinschen, Jane Welbourne (back), Andrew Welsh, Lee-Anne and David Hinschen and Catherine Welsh (front) officiated at the recent All Schools Championships in Townsville.
