On Monday October 29th, three of Greenvale Primary Schools top performing athletes attended the School Sport Victoria, State Track and Field Championships. This was held in gorgeous conditions at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park.
Mischa, Kean and Max have been working hard all year, in and out of their Physical Education sessions with an aim of improving their physical performances.
Their athletics journeys have been varied, with some relatively new and others years in the making.
For their 2018 School Sport Victoria journey, it started all the back in Term One, when they competed at our Greenvale PS Athletics Carnival, winning their way into the Greenvale PS Athletics Team.
As they have progressed through the School Sport Victoria system they have proudly represented our school and made significant contributions to our success at District, Divisional, Regional and now State levels of competition.
Mischa represented Greenvale Primary School for the second time at the State Championships, this year claiming third in the 10 Year Girls Discus.
Kean made his first State Championships appearance, placing second in the 11 Year Boys 100m Sprint and 3rd in the 11 Year Boys 200m Sprint (by only the tighest of margins).
Max competed in his second State Championships, winning the sprinters double in by placing first in the 12 Year Boys 100m Sprint and 12 Year Boys 200m Sprint.
Max’s finals were tight finishes and in both of the races he had to battle from behind to claim victory. He now holds the title of State Champion.
All three students will go onto represent Team Victoria at the upcoming School Sport Australia Championships, which are held in Melbourne in November.
Thank you to the parents who came along to support and congratulations to all three of students on your hard work, dedication, persistence, skill, athleticism and sportsmanship.
You have represented our school, true to our values and should be so proud of your huge achievements.
I look forward to seeing where your futures lead.
