Good luck to all athletes attending State Championships at SOPAC on 16 & 17 March 2019
Unfortunately there is no training this afternoon due to wet weather, and storms predicted later on. We apologise for any inconvenience.
You are welcome to attend our committee meeting on Wednesday 20 Feb 201 at 6.30 pm held at Breakers Country Club, Wamberal.

General members have their opinions heard and are influential in all decisions- or consider taking on a specific role, all positions will be open. Details will be posted in the upcoming weeks and we would love to see more new faces wearing those blue committee shirts!!
TWLA athletes had an amazing weekend at the Region Championships. They braved ridiculous temperatures (Saturday), windy conditions (Sunday) and stiff competition (the whole weekend!) but managed many personal bests, supported their teammates and mingled with athletes from other clubs.
Four athletes have automatically qualified for progression to the State Championships:
Ava Simos (U13G) qualified for 5 events – Gold medal in the 200m hurdles, gold medal (and a region record) in the 80m hurdles, silver medal in the 100m, silver medal in the 200m and silver medal in the long jump
Izabella Dunne (U14G) qualified for two events – Gold medal in the 1500m walk and silver medal in the 1500m. She also received a bronze medal in the 800m.
Felicity Ruzek (U11G) qualified in the 60m hurdles having won a silver medal.
Layla Pace (U10G) qualified in the 60m hurdles having won a silver medal. She also placed 5th in the 200m and 6th in the 100m.
Three additional athletes won bronze medals and will wait to see if their times/distances qualify them for the State Championships:
India-Rose Barnett (U14G) won bronze in the HJ.
Adhieu Bior-Black (U13G) won bronze in the 400m. She also placed 5th in the 200m and 6th in the 800m.
Lindsay Hallam (U13G) won bronze in the 80m hurdles and placed 8th in the 100m.
Cameron Stamper (U11G) won bronze in the 60m hurdles. She also placed 4th in HJ and 4th in TJ
Jimmy Johnston (U10B) won bronze in the 200m. He also placed 5th in LJ, 5th in the 100m and 6th in the 400m.
Tyla Channells (U10G) won bronze in the 800m and bronze in the LJ. She also placed 5th in the 400m.
Two other athletes had strong 4th place finishes and will wait to see if their times qualify them for the State Championships:
Jasmine Freers (U10G) placed 4th in the 70m. She also placed 5th in the 100m and 7th in the 800m.
Tobias Gray (U9B) placed 4th in the 400m. He also placed 7th in the 800m.
A special acknowledgement goes to Harry Lowbridge (U8B) who received three medals – gold in the 200m, silver in the 70m and silver in the 100m. What a fantastic effort Harry! U8 athletes do not proceed to the State Championships.

The full results will be posted by LANSW – go to http://www.lansw.com and then click on competitions and then results. In the meantime, I have reviewed the results and Terrigal-Wamberal athletes have performed exceptionally well at the recent Zone Championships. Of the 83 registered athletes, 42 have automatically qualified for the Region Championships in at least one event by receiving a gold, silver or bronze medal. Many of these athletes will qualify for more events once the additional qualifiers list is posted. A huge congratulations to all 42 athletes for these amazing performances.
Special recognition goes to a handful of athletes with outstanding individual performances through the weekend:

Harper Beatty was a triple medalist with silver in the 500m, bronze in the 50m and bronze in the 100m (as a U7 athlete Harper’s championships journey ends at Zone but what amazing results for a 6 year old!)

Our junior boys and girls relays also both received bronze medals – congratulations to Tobias Gray, Jimmy Johnston, James Milne and Tyler Robson (boys) and Mieke Oosthuizen, Layla Pace, Cameron Stamper and Bethan Minor (girls). They will not proceed onto Region but ran excellent races with very little training time together as a team. Well done!
Athletes who placed fourth or fifth or beyond are also to be highly commended – our Zone is probably the most competitive in our Region so many of the additional qualifiers will be selected from our Zone. Stay tuned for those selections to be published!
And finally, congratulations to all athletes who achieved a PB and those who just generally braved the hot weekend to be a part of a fun community event – keep up the great effort!
