Our quiet achievers are shining on an Australian athletics stage

At the South Coast Schools Sports Association Blues Awards held at the Illawarra Turf Club, Kembla Grange on November 28th Guest speakers Wendell Sailor and Australian Hockey Roo Grace Stuart saw Broulee runner Jaylah Hancock- Cameron awarded the Brian Downes Trophy for the most outstanding achievement in Athletics

Under the very competitive guidelines Blues are awarded to those nominated students who achieve outstanding representation in their chosen sport/s, and who displayed sportsmanship which embraces the ideals of the South Coast Schools Sports Association Jaylah was awarded this prestigious accolade from the ranks of other outstanding State representatives in their sport In addition to being awarded the South Coast SSA sporting blue for 2017 the very exciting news is that Jaylah has her first sponsor, "HUCK NUTRITION" energy gels, which are used by elite athletes to assist in maintaining energy levels and hydration during training and performance. Jaylah's Limitless Track Team mate Asha Martin was also awarded a Sporting Blue award for 2017 and an additional NSW Premier Sporting Challenge scholarship to the value of $500. Both girls have put in a mighty effort this year and massive points have to go to Asha who did a 2.5 second PB in the 1500m running on Nov 24th with a 4.40.01 which was all the more remarkable considering she was not even going to race having just come off being sick with a chest infection. These girls are both incredibly dedicated and tenacious and under the ever watchful guidance of Limitless Track Team coach Andae Kalemusic they continue to gain PBs, medals and trophies along with the close attention of the Australian Athletic observers and commentators. Both girls are now off to Adelaide for Australian All schools next week held between Dec 7th and 10th where Jaylah will be competing in both her events of the 800m and 1500m and Asha running in her favoured 3km event. We wish them well.
