Delaneys Creek children show their talent in the big league
Local Delaneys Creek kids show the big league that they are on an equal footing.
The Regional athletics was held at Sippy Downs on the 6 September, where some of Delaneys Creek locals showed off their talent.
It all started at Zone Sports Day at Nudgee College where Bianca Hewitt Ruhle, Tiarna Hewett Ruhle, Max Ngawhare, Laine Crocome and Sam Cook had to compete with other children who were from areas such as Kilcoy, Redcliffe, Bribie and all of the Caboolture schools, including private schools. Bianca was named Age Chapion and she and the others made it through to the Regionals.
They all did very well in the Regionals, Bianca was placed third in shot put, but just missed out on the qualifying distance for the State Athletics.
Tiarna Hewitt Ruhle got a 1st in Discus and a 4th in Shot Put. Tiarna was injured in a football game the night before, so this was a great effort, and I’m sure Mum, Michelle Hewitt, was very proud of her daughters.
Max Ngawhare’s long legs helped him to win 1st place in the high jump and Laine Crocombe came 3rd. Sam Cook set a new record when he won the 400 metres. Tiarna, Max, Laine and Sam all qualified for the State athletics next
month and we wish them the best of luck. Well done guys, you did a brilliant job.
