The 2019 Athletics season was one of the most successful seasons to date, filled with a sense of team unity and personal bests. Last term, at the QGSSSA Athletics competition, every girl embodied this year’s athletics motto—‘faster, further, higher’.
The dedication, drive and persistence on display by our Grammar girls was unmatched by any other school. The overall age group results of the day are as follows:
12 Years and Under 2nd
13 Years 5th
14 Years 3rd
15 Years 1st
16 Years 5th
17 Years 1st
These fantastic results saw Girls Grammar place 2nd overall—a significant improvement on last year’s 6th place.
The following girls should be congratulated for placing first place in their respective events: Olivia Mitchell (8H), Polly Lawrence (10E), Matisse Black (11H), Gia Cayas (11G) and Madeline Clark (12E).
A special congratulations to Jade Somerville (9G) who won two of her events, and to AJ Tucker (9H) and Elizabeth Moss (12E) who placed first in all three of their individual events. The 15B, 17A and 17B 4x100m relay girls also all placed first.
This incredible success could not have been achieved without the School’s wonderful team of coaches and Head Coach, Ms Tatianna Grigorieva. We are grateful for the wisdom, expertise and experience that they provided to our athletics squad. Finally, we thank Athletics Coordinator, Mrs Greenland—without her organisation, wisdom and commitment, the season wouldn’t have been such a success.
