Congratulations to Year 6 Balcombe Grammar School student, Geena Barbour-Davy who recently competed at the State Little Athletics Championships held at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday 11 March 2018.
Geena started Little Athletics in September last year and really enjoyed participating in the Long Jump and Triple Jump events. After competing at several of their open days, Geena progressed to Regionals at Ballam Park, where she came first in Triple Jump with a jump of 9.45m and third in Long Jump with a jump of 4.37, qualifying Geena for the State Championships.
On the Sunday of the State Championships, after several jumps, Geena achieved a personal best of 9.57m on her fourth jump.
“I was extremely happy when the officials called my name for second place and ecstatic when they said that first and second places got a state record!” Geena said.
