Tigers named in Territory Nationals team

Following the ACT Primary Schools and the ACT Secondary Schools state championships, a number of very lucky Ginninderra Athletes have been selected in the ACT team to compete at Nationals.

Each weekend a taste of the best events are on offer in each age group and athletes can pick and choose what they want to do with participation always encouraged.

Little Athletics is all about family fun and fitness. A morning with the Tigers is all that and more. Get an activity fix, cheer on your friends and sing along to the best music as it pumps you up for your next PB.

Cross Country Tigers off to Melbourne

On the 29th of August 2015 Ginninderra's best Cross Country runners will take on the rest of Australia at the School Sport Australia National Cross Country Championships in Melbourne.

The Tigers feature plenty of experience and some new blood at this year's event. James Lemon will be hoping to go one better in Melbourne and claim his first gold medal at Nationals having finished second last year.

Hannah Cadden, Andrew McFarlane, Layla Rowntree and Rebecca Jarvis also return to give it their all at the Moonee Valley Racecourse venue. They all performed exceptionally well in 2014 with some really strong performances.

Joining the Tiger Cohort for their first Nationals are Jacob Davill, Meg Freeman and Jordan King. All very deserving of their place at the pinnacle competition for cross country athletes in Australia.

Experience the course for yourself by watching the video and perhaps you can give a tip or two to your favourite Tiger!!
