Academy Lone Star athlete Luke Goodwin was recently named the Penrith Valley Sports Foundation Senior Sports Star of the Month.
Luke is a member of the Penrith BMX Club and has been competing in BMX since 2015. Considering he has only been competing in the sport for such a short period of time, Luke has made some impressive achievements.
This year Luke has been competing in the 2021 BMX NSW/ACT State Series. In early May he competed in Round 5 where he placed seventh in the 17-24 Cruiser men and set a personal best track time of 40.788 seconds. In round 4 he came in fifth place in the 17-24 Cruiser men. In Round 3 Luke placed tenth in the 17-24 Cruiser men. In Round 2 he placed eighth in the 17-24 Cruiser men and in round 1 he came in sixth place in the 17-24 Cruiser men.
In the 2020 BMX NSW State Series Luke came in seventh place overall an impressive result for having only been racing for five years at the time.
Outside of BMX, Luke recently competed at the 2021 Werrington zone cross country carnival where he placed eleventh missing out on the Sydney West Cross Country Carnival by three places.
