SSV State Athletics- Harriet and Cleo!


Yesterday, in perfect conditions at Lakeside Stadium, two Rathfarnham students Harriet McCorkell and Cleo Richardson competed at the State Athletics. We are thrilled to announce that these girls were successful in their events and have both now qualified to represent Team Victoria at the upcoming Nationals on Friday 23 November.

Harriet McCorkell (Year 6), our first ever Multi Class athlete, has been training hard for the past two terms with our Athletics coaches to improve her technique in her chosen events. Yesterday, she was able to throw a PB of 5.75m and win a Gold medal for Shot Put in great style and she was awarded a Bronze medal in her 100m sprint. Congratulations, Harriet!

Cleo Richardson (Year 6) qualified the 800m and 1500m. Yesterday, she ran in a competitive field of girls for her 800m and made up a significant gap in the last 200m to claim a Silver medal. She then rested and competed in the afternoon in the 1500m event where she again ran a wonderful race to claim the Silver medal. This is the second year in a row that Cleo will represent Team Victoria for Track and Field – an amazing achievement, well done Cleo!
