School Sports Victoria State Track and Field Championships
The State Track and Field Championships were held on Monday the 17th of October at Lakeside Stadium. After the Moonee Valley and Western Metropolitan Rounds we had three students progress through, Benan Oztorun, Maeve Bousie and Tommy Karagiannis.
Benan (Year 12) has represented Strathmore Secondary College multiple times at the State Track and Field Championships. This year he progressed and competed in the Long Jump. With three successful jumps in the pit, Benan jumped a winning 6.76m to be titled State Champion in the U18-20 Boys Long Jump.
Maeve Bousie (Year 8) progressed through the State Track and Field Championships for the first time as a Strathmore Secondary student. She competed in the High Jump in the U14 age group. Maeve jumped a personal best of 1.53m to win the silver medal and her first ever SSV State Track and Field medal.
Tommy Karagiannis (Year 8) also progressed through to the State Track and Field Championships for the first time as a Strathmore Secondary student. He competed in the U14 Discus event, placing 4th with a throw of 37.77m and narrowly missing out on a medal.
These students’ achievements are remarkable and a credit to the hard work they put in outside of school training to better their performances. We are so proud of their achievements and look forward to continue to see them achieve excellent results.
