Athletes Thrive Against State's Best

The Geelong College's track and field athletes have pushed themselves to achieve their best results at the Victorian All Schools Championships at the weekend.

Following their impressive performances at the APS Athletics Finals, Skye Ellis, Nick O'Brien and Cassidy Bradshaw (Year 8), Olivia Richardson and Sophia Powers (Year 9), Eliza Walsh (Year 10) and Libby Falkiner (Year 11) represented the College at the All Schools competition on 3-5 November.

Congratulations to the students for their efforts at Lakeside Stadium, which included 10 personal bests and four school records. The Year 8 contingent was particularly successful, winning three gold medals, a silver and a bronze! Libby Falkiner also received a silver medal in the U17 Hurdles, where she recorded a personal best and broke the school record.
