Moreton Bay College ended a three year drought and St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School achieved a three year winning streak at the 96th Annual QGSSSA Track and Field Athletics Championships.
Along with winning the Stephens Cup Aggregate Trophy, MBC scooped three of the six Age Pennants on offer: 13, 15 and 16 Years.
St Aidan’s again showed that size wasn’t a factor in taking out not only the Dell Mellefont Percentage Cup for the third year running, but the 17 Years and Over Age Pennant.
Their 17 Years & Over A relay team highlighted the finale to the day running the fastest 4 x 100m time in QGSSSA history of 48.81 seconds, shaving seven one hundredths of a second off the previous record set by Brisbane State High School only a year ago (48.88).
This record was one of nine broken in the 13-17 Years age groups, including two long standing records which finally were toppled.
Brisbane Girls Grammar School’s Rebecca Haley jumped 1.73m in the 15 Years High Jump to break a record set in 1983 and equalled in 1987, while State High’s Katrina Robinson ran a sizzling 2:12.27 in the 800m breaking the record set in 1992 by 1.34 seconds.
The 12 Years and Under division saw 12 new records set after the inaugural year of competition in 2015.
All records set and final results can be found via the ‘Athletics’ section of this website.
QGSSSA looks forward to competing on the new QSAC track on 20th October 2017 when the new redevelopment has been completed.
