On the 6th – 8th December our Heartland Motors Lone Star Little Athletics athlete Rachel Bardney travelled to Mount Claremont WA for the 2019 Australian All Schools Championships.
Only the top two athletes from each event at State Championships qualify to compete at Nationals. While most athletes attending the Championships only qualified for one event, Rachel qualified for three events including Discus, Javelin and Shot Put.
Rachels first event was Discus and she won Silver missing out on Gold by only 4cm! On day two she competed in Javelin and placed 5th and day three, the final day, she competed in Shot Put and won Silver.
The following weekend, Rachel competed at the Little Athletics Northwest Met Zone Championships.
Rachel competed in the Javelin and won Gold with a new Zone record, she also won the Shot Put and Discus convincingly. The other events she chose to compete in were 100m sprint, 80m Hurdles and the Long Jump.
She qualified for Regional Championships, taking place in February, for all six of her events.
