Two BCGS students head to national athletics

Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School students Joshua Wigmore and Lewis Evans-Thomson will head to Sydney to compete in the Australian Athletics Junior Championships.

Lewis won silver in the 400m, javelin, triple jump, high jump and bronze in 800m at the State Championships in the under 16 category.

After finishing first in the State Championships 800m final, 16-year-old Joshua will be competing at the national event, running in the 800m, 400m and relay competitions in the under 18 category.

Joshua said he was very excited about the opportunity to compete at the national level.

β€œI was really happy with my run at States and so hopefully I can do well in Sydney,” Joshua said.

β€œIt is a great honour to be able to represent WA and the South West.”

The 2017 Australian Junior Athletics will be held at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre from Sunday, 26 March.

We wish Lewis and Josh the best of luck!
