Congratulations to Cooper Schmidt on winning both the boys U17 110m hurdles AND the boys U17 triple jump at last weekend’s Queensland State Athletics Championships.

Cooper is now State Champion across two separate events –a fantastic achievement, made all the more impressive considering he also recorded personal bests in both events. Cooper also backed up these efforts with a Top 10 finish in the boys U17 Long Jump.

Congratulations also extend to Mattias (Year 8) and reigning POP Sportsperson of the Year Stephanie (Year 11) who also competed at the Championships. Mattias finished in 2nd place in the 14yrs boys 1500m race. Stephanie continued her good form finishing 4th in the U17 girls 800m.

These results continue to highlight the effort and dedication levels of our athletes, and that POP students can match it with anyone at any level of competition.
