Belconnen athletes make the grade for Nationals

Pressing their claim for inclusion in the LAACT Team for the Australian Little Athletics Championships in Perth next month a number of Belconnen’s best and brightest athletes have been selected.

Ginninderra Tiger Trio Molly Sturgiss (ACT Primary Schools Captain), Jacob Todd and Ben Taylor have been selected in the following events:

  • Jacob:  800m, 1500m
  • Ben: Javelin, Shot Put, Discus
  • Molly: 200m, 400m

The team of 22 athletes in the Under 13 Age Group also comprises Emily Pease and Spencer Burns from the Belconnen Blue-tongues. The ACT contingent includes an additional 4 athletes in the Under 15 Age Group who compete in a Multi-event competition.

These Belconnen Athletes follow the path of Naomi Stewart, Lara Sinclair, Chichi Enyi, Lauren Robards and Mitch Baker into National Competition. Last year Mitch claimed a silver medal in the 1500m Walk which was his first taste of a National Championship.

The Summer Athletics Season has now come to an end and there will be a short interval before the Winter and School-based season begins. Training and Coaches are available from your local Belconnen Athletics Club to give you the edge for improved performance and higher representative honours.
