State sporting success

Lone Star athlete Natalie Sharp last weekend competed in the Little Athletics Association of NSW 2008 State Track and Field Championships. Natalie placed 5th in the 3000m, 3rd in the 800m and won the 1500m race with a time of 4.53 minutes. Natalie has been training hard with coach Paul Unsworth (WRAS consultant) over the last few months as well as seeing Strength and Conditioning Intern Nathan Carroll to get her time under the 5 minute mark. Congratulations Natalie!

In other exciting news, basketball athletes Will Aisake and Olivia Patterson attended the state trials on the Easter long weekend and were both selected in NSW teams. Will who is a member of the 2008 WRAS basketball senior squad, was selected in the NSW U18 men’s team which is an amazing result considering he has only been playing the sport for a few years. Olivia has been a member of the WRAS for the past 3 years and will play for the NSW U16 women’s team. Both athletes have been working extremely hard over the last few months, preparing for these trials with Will spending 5 hours a day on shooting practice throughout the Christmas school holidays and Olivia having regular sessions with Strength and Conditioning Intern Nathan Carroll. Congratulations Will and Olivia! Don’t forget to let the WRAS office know if you have received some exciting news, we love to hear about it!
