We would also like to congratulate U14 An-ne Pelser who was nominated for this year's Young sports Person of the Year award.

As we near the end of the school year we also have a break from local competition from mid December.

During this time there are many other athletics competitions that take place throughout the state.

This year the Country Championships will be held in Margaret River.

We encourage all of our athletes to nominate and give it ago, it is a fantastic opportunity to meet up with other athletes and make new friends.
