What a weekend of racing from the Sunshine Coast Triathlon Academy / Protector Aluminium Athletes that were in action at Queensland Schools Athletics Championships in Brisbane, Queensland All Schools Triathlon Championships at Lake Kawana, Trex Cross Triathlon and Trail Run Australia at Ewen Maddock Dam. Some great results across the board.
Very warm and humid conditions greeted the athletes competing in the Queensland All schools Run by Triathlon Queensland at Lake Kawana. The Aquathlon Races were up first and all the SCTA juniors Raced extremely well in very competitive fields and big numbers of competitors. Well done to, Jake and Zak Hammond, Pipi Barlow, Heidi Craig, Zoe Davis and Ava Foreman
In the Triathlon in all the races there were 2 waves of competitors with Sunshine Coast Region I the 2nd wave. Wave one had most of the Brisbane athletes in there and were most of the major competition was, so it was hard to get a gauge how they were going up against them. All of the SCTA Juniors performed remarkably well and have all qualified for the Queensland Schools Triathlon Champs that will be held at Hervey Bay next March.
Leading the charge was SCTA / Protector Aluminium Junior Scholarship Holder, Peyton Craig with a 3rd Junior Male. Fellow SCTA Junior Scholarship Holder Macey Roberts was 9th Senior Female. Ella Wooldridge just missed the podium in Senior Girls with a 4th. Ryan Marsh raced well for his 7th Intermediate Male amongst very competitive field. Erin Wooldridge rounded out the top 10 with a 9th Intermediate Female. Jack Dann was having a great race riding thru on the cycle leg, until a puncture on the bike ended his race.
For the rest of the SCTA Juniors, Mia Wooldridge, Jericho Pogany, Kayleigh Foster, Jorja Matthews, Oscar Starr - Thomas and Scott Marsh all raced well in their respective age categories.
Brisbane was the venue for the Queensland Schools Athletics Championships held over 4 days starting on the Thursday. Ella Wooldridge took 3rd 16 Years 2000m Steeple (her first Qld Medal since relocating from NSW). Peyton Craig was 5th in a very competitive 13 years 800m that saw seconds separating the 3rd - 5th. Ryan Marsh ran strongly in the 15 Years 3000m with a 7th while Erin Wooldridge was 8th 15 Years 2000m Steeple.
The Trex Cross Triathlon (Doubling as the Queensland Cross Triathlon Champs) was held at Ewen Maddock Dam on Saturday over the 1km Swim / 19km Mt Bike / 7km Trail Run. SCTA had 3 athletes in action and was great to see Intune Sports and Health Owner Brodie Gardner take out the OPEN Male Race Win with his Partner and Massage Therapist at Intune Sports Kate Schultz take out the OPEN Female Race Win. Nicholas Hull raced his first ever off road Tri to take 5th place OPEN Male
On Sunday, Ewen Maddock was also the Venue for Trail Run Australia Sunshine Coast, where some of the SCTA Juniors took on the 5km Trail Run in the 10-11 Years Female. Libby Latimer and Amber Faherty were joint winners as they dead heated, while Summer Latimer was 2nd and Kiah Cox 3rd. Well done Girls. Great running
