Sheldon Academy of Sport (SAS) is celebrating the recent outstanding national level achievements of Sheldon College Track & Field athletes.

SAS Athletics Club members who competed at the recent Queensland Athletics State Track & Field Championships achieved the following State Championship medals.   

  • Riley Niven – Gold in the U20 1500m and Silver in the 800m 
  • Luke Stachowicz – Gold in U18 Javelin 
  • Zephyr Marlin – Gold in U16 High Jump 
  • Sovannary Seremet – Silver in U15 Triple Jump, Bronze in High Jump and in Hurdles

  • Samuel Heeremans – Silver in the U18 2km Steeplechase 
  • Zoe Beith – Bronze in U17 Shot Put 
  • Kalliyan Seremet – Bronze in U17 Long Jump 

These athletes, along with Kai Haynes, Innis Hooper, Lucy Schooth and Madison Witt, qualified to compete at Athletics Australia’s National Championships in Sydney. 

 In addition to these outstanding achievements, three of our athletes competed at the recent Athletics Australia’s Junior Combined Event National Championships in Melbourne.  There, Sovannary Seremet claimed National Bronze in the U15 Girls Heptathlon, in which she won the high jump and hurdles, placed second in the long jump and performed well in shot put, javelin, the 200m sprint and 800m middle distance event.  Madison Witt (U16 Heptathlon) and Kalliyan Seremet (U17 Heptathlon) should also be very proud, with both finishing within the top eight athletes in Australia.   

Achievements such as these are not possible without years of dedication, commitment and hard work from our athletes, their parents and coaching teams. Yet again, we’re humbled by our exceptional team of coaches, led by Sheldon Academy of Sport Head Athletics Coach, Ben Norton; Head Throws Coach, Donna Miller; Head Jumps Coach, Andrew Lulham and Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Steve Whelan.
