In February, Year 11 student Beau Haynes competed at the National U/19 Outrigger Canoeing Sprint Titles in Queensland, where he won two team silver medals. Beau’s individual and team performances also earned him selection on the National U/19 OC6 Sprint crew, who will travel to Taaone Bay, Tahiti, to represent Australia at the Va’a World Sprint Championships in July.
Year 8 student Gabriel (Gabe) Doolan then represented WA at the National School Athletics Championships on the Gold Coast at the beginning of May. He finished fifth in the 100m sprint with a time of 12.24 seconds, just outside his personal best, and also came fourth in the 200m, running a time of 25.37 seconds.
Gabe also represented WA in the 4x100m relay, helping the team smash their personal best with a combined time of 47.33 seconds.
