On a hot balmy Wednesday evening at the WA Athletics Stadium, North Beach U18yo Girl’s & Boy’s teams have won bronze medals in the 4x400m relay at the 2011/12 WA State Championships.
Punching well above their weight, the girls A team with Abigail Dargan, Ella Italiano-Schmidt, Lara Wood & Paige Gavranich claimed 3rd position in front of Blues B team made up of Vanine Palm, Keah Waters, Maddi Fairburn & Monique Nicolaou. Both the North Beach girls teams showed tremendous fight and to get amongst the medals is a huge effort considering they have a tender average age of only 14yo. The race was won by Bunbury with UWA second.
Junior Blues boy’s team made up of Adrian Biemmi, Frazer Fullerton, Brad Waters & Sam Hughes (also with an average age of only 14yo) claimed 3rd position. Once again the boys showed good spirit and ran extremely well to podium finish, but most of all they gained some valuable experience for the future. The race was won by UWA with West Track second. Watch replay.
Well done to all Blues members who competed on the night. Also a huge thanks to those from North Beach who assisted with the hurdles and equipment. A full Wednesday night wrap up of the AWA competition and relay results are below.
