2014 State Primary Schools Track and Field Championships, Lakeside Stadium
29 Oct 2014
Ruyton’s Junior School has been, for the past two decades, the breeding ground for many of the School’s prominent runners. This year, six Junior School girls represented Ruyton at the 2014 State Primary Schools Track and Field Championships at Lakeside Stadium.
In the 10 years age group, Mia W became the first Ruyton girl since Sarah B to win a State Primary School 100m Championship. She followed this tremendous effort by finishing 3rd in the 200m final. Aisha K, also running in the 10 years age group, finished an impressive 6th in the 800m final in windy conditions. Aisha then showed great courage and tactical nouse to finish 2nd in the 1500m final.
Laura Jane I continued her rise in the long jump rankings by finishing in 5th place in the 12 years Long Jump final. Laura Jane then teamed up with Maddy T, Mia W and Amber W to claim a place in the 4x100m Relay final. In the final, the Team finished 8th overall. The experience and camaraderie of making a State final will spur these girls onto greater heights in the coming years.
