Australia Day Athletics

The Zatopek:10, Australia’s premier middle distance track meet, brought together many Haileybury athletes on Australia Day. Despite hot and humid conditions, Amy Bunnage (Year 12) was superb in winning the U20 Ondieki 3000m in 9.37.63, with Lucinda Rourke (OH ‘21) running second. Amy led and ran with the pack, only to kick well clear with a lap to go. This effort was just short of the World Junior Qualifying mark.

Charlie Rogers (Year 12) ran in the U20 de Castella Men’s 3000m and finished 15th, just shy of his Personal Best.

Mia Scerri (Year 12) competed in the Open Long, recording a massive 6.14m which was 2nd on countback. The jump was a World Junior Qualifier but didn’t count due to an excessive tailwind.

Plenty of Haileybury relay runners all competed strongly too including Ben Horsey (Year 12) 4x100m, Luke Gough (Year 11) 4x400m, Olu Araba 4x100m (OH ‘21) and Emily McLean 4x 100m/400m (OH ‘11).

Winning Doubles Combo

Olivia Moir (Year 11) and Shalyn Phillips (Year 10) won the U16 Doubles Victorian Schoolgirls Championships at Boroondara in late December. They were the 4th seeds in the tournament and had to overcome fierce competition. Well done!

Netball Congratulations

Congratulations to Liv Jones (Year 11) who has been selected for the U17 Victorian State Netball Squad. We wish Liv all the best with the upcoming final team selection at the end of January.


Future Swim Stars

Things are looking bright as we head into the summer season. Campbell Wilson-Moran (Year 9) has been busy at the Victorian Sprint Championships competing in a number of strokes. Campbell also recorded National Qualifying Times for the upcoming National Age Championships.

Away from the pool and in the open water, Tommy Lane (Year 11) finished 4th in Australia in the 5km event at the Australian Open Water Championships in Adelaide. This is a fantastic result and was only Tommy’s third 5km swim. I look forward to watching Tommy’s great future. He is an absolute work horse and we should see him on the podium in this event in 2023.

Touch Rugby Talents

Oliver Toohey (Year 8) and William Toohey (Year 11) have been selected and played representative touch rugby for the Melbourne Storm U14s and 16s respectively. Each team did very well. The U16s finished 3rd in the Open Men’s A grade tournament.

Oliver and William
