The MGSC State Knockout athletics team has repeated their impressive performance in 2016 and won the 2017 State Knockout Championships. We entered two teams this year, a Junior team who finished 14th who gained valuable experience competing at a State event. Abbey T and Meka B both ran well in the 100m, Hope M and Holly T put in great times in the 800m, Michaela O tried her hardest in the hurdles, and Catriona M threw some good throws in the javelin and shot put. Cat also anchored the 4x200m run and overtook 3 runners in her heat.
The all impressive Intermediate team (2016 Junior gold medalist) who have won Gold again. We have had some very impressive results in the last few weeks and today tops them all. Competing as bottom age in the Intermediate age group, with three girls who could be in the junior team, and gunning for a top 5 result we exceeded all expectations and beat Firbank in 2nd and Caulfield Grammar in 3rd. Our girls were congratulated by countless private and public school coaches/teachers who all said that it is great to see a public school dominate an All Schools athletics competition.
Zoe C was inspirational in winning the long jump, 2nd in the high jump and 3rd in the hurdles. Emily R won the shot put, Kisarna B won the javelin and ran a super 800m, Millie B put in another ripper 800m time, Milly W ran a great 100m and 200m, Aila B stepped up into the Inter team and ran a solid 100m, and Teiki W's 200m was excellent. The swedish medley team came in 3rd spot which was very valuable points.
The Intermediate team is now off to Adelaide in December to compete at the National Knockout Championships. The team may change for Nationals depending on a variety of factors but in the meantime a huge congratulations to Kisarna B, Teiki W, Zoe C, Millie B, Milly W, Emily R, and Aila B on their Gold medal, and the junior team for representing the school at a State event. Go Mentone.
