Track and Field News

23/05/2017
​Track and Field has been the most successful sport at Centenary over the last few years. We have dominated the district across all major categories, and in 2016 we took home every trophy on offer (Champion School, Boys, Girls, and Percentage). 

Our success has been based upon an increased focus in the curriculum, as well as providing a quality training program for students taken by our great staff as well as a range of external coaches. This, combined with the efforts of our students giving their all, led to this success.
 
No doubt other schools in the district will be aiming to take our crown and thus we need to maintain the focus.  Apart from the school success, Centenary SHS is keen to see as many students as possible be selected for representative honours and compete at the Met West Championships against the best athletes in the Region.
The final teams for Districts are not purely based on performance at our carnival.  Other factors such as training attendance and performance are also taken into consideration to get the best possible team to represent the school.

Training has already started and at this stage the following sessions are offered:
Monday 7:30am Gym; Monday & Tuesday 3:10pm Oval; Wednesday 7:30am Oval

For the sessions, staff will conduct training across the key areas and work on both conditioning and technique. All students are welcome! Amendments to the program may be made where applicable and these will be communicated in notices.

Our current guest coaches include:

Hannah Joye (Jumps)

Hannah was a 2014 Australian High Jump Representative at the Glasgow Commonweath Games (6th), PB - 1.92m. Hannah will be working with students across all the jumps. Currently she is studying Science at Griffith University and attempting to qualify for the World Championships in London later in the year.
