Federal Funds help St George Athletic Club

In collaboration with St George Little Athletics Centre our club has received funding from the Federal Government. David Coleman, member for Banks, was instrumental in providing for both our clubs.

We have purchased a defibrillator (AED) which is in our hands, timing mats which we expect to receive this week and a new marquee. The marquee will make our club very prominent at the events we attend. Our thanks to David Coleman and Geoff Lindner (St George Little Athletics) who coordinated with the government department for making it happen.

St George Athletes Shine at Nowra XC 2019

ST. GEORGE SHINES ON ICONIC NOWRA COURSE AT 2019 STATE CROSS COUNTRY

A team of 24 athletes travelled down to Nowra on Saturday 22 June 2019  to take on the hills and the state’s best at the 2019 Athletics NSW State Cross Country Championships.

We had our most successful campaign in recent history, bringing home a phenomenal 6 GOLD, 4 SILVER and 4 BRONZE. More importantly however, every single athlete in the Red & White left everything out on the course and did themselves, their families and their club extremely proud.

Nathan Breen, Club Distance Co-Captain and Greg Breen Distance Secretary

(And thanks to Dave Carey for bringing a tent to make a Saints HQ, Nathan Breen for some great race calling and announcing, Greg Breen for supporting us all, and to the runners and family members who cheered people on course or at the finish line. Special mention to Paul Arthur for his humorous takeover of the teams medal presentation, although with comedy like that he deserves a bigger crowd.)

International Representatives 2019/2020

Following on from the wonderful success of Jasmin (Javelin Gold in Melanesia) and Lauren (16th in U20 World XC), we have some more International representatives in the wings.
Over 25-28 June, Andrew Goschnik (U18 400m Hurdles) and Billy Humberstone (U20 110m Hurdles) will be competing for Australia in the Oceania Area Championships in Townsville. Both are coached by Michelle Douglas. We send our best wishes to them for this fantastic opportunity.

Nicole Harris was a finalist in the 2016 Rio Paralympics where she set an Oceania record in F20 shotput. She will be representing again in the 2019 Global Games in Brisbane this October. We send positive thoughts (esp as the mantra in shot put is keep your thumb down…)

At a National level, Tess Healey has been selected in the NSW Half Marathon team to contest the Australian championships in August, as has her husband Seth, two years in a row for both of them!

Congratulations to all our athletes and their coaches and families.
