Territory Tigers represent State with Pride

The 2017 Australian Little Athletics Championships (ALAC) was held in Sydney on 22nd-23rd April. The ACT team was captained this year by Ginninderra's very own Bec Guest.

Rebecca was joined on team ACT with her Tiger mates Alice Fraser, Austin Tetteh, James Lemon and Harry Francis.

Some fantastic and memorable performances by everyone. Just to make the National Championships is a feat in itself and to be counted in the top 16 in their chosen events is marvellous.

Highlights from the two day competition include Austin's 5th placing in the 200m Final and his three Personal Bests (200m, 400m and Long Jump). Austin was also a member of the State 4x100m team.

Rebecca ran a sizzling final leg in her 4x100m Relay Final to finish 6th and only just getting pipped for 5th by 0.04s. Bec's 400m was a gutsy run and almost broke her PB.

Alice made massive improvements in Sydney with big throws in both the Discus and the Shot Put.

Harry came away with two new PBs in both of his Hurdles events and was only 0.1s outside the Club Record in the 200mH.

James made the top eight in his 1500m Walk and ran a PB in his 800m Final clocking 2:20.68.

2017 Record Breakers

At the Annual Presentation Day, Ginninderra Athletics presents athletes with a special Record Breaker Coin for anyone who breaks the current verified record.

In the 2016-17 Season a staggering 64 Records were broken by the current cohort of Tigers. Well done to everyone who beat a record this season.

Last House Day with a bit of Nitro added for fun

The hugely popular House Days conclude this weekend, in fact Ginninderra's last meet of the season, on Saturday starting at the normal times.

The leaderboard in the run up to this Saturday is:

  2. Sumatrans
  3. Bengals

Houses compete for Points on House Days that are based on team and individual performances as well as spirit, sportsmanship, personal bests and attendance.
