The Oceania Championships were held in Mackay Queensland from Tuesday 7 June – Thursday 11 June. Jonathan Harris (Year 11), a member of our SPSC Cross Country and Athletics Squad was selected to represent Australia in the Under 18 competition and gained the following results –
- 1500m – Silver Medal in a time of 3:56.17
- 800m – Bronze Medal in a time of 1:54.70, only 0.55sec behind 1st place with 0.56sec separating the first four athletes across the finish line.
While this competition was held in the same week as the SSSSA State Cross Country Championships, a selection event for the Secondary Schools Sport SA Cross Country Team to compete at Nationals in Adelaide mid next term, Jonathan has nominated for selection. We wish him well in the next qualifying event and future selection procedures.
