Students are top sports at school

THERE is no shortage of good sports or so it seems at Aldridge State High School.

Well, not if the annual sports award night at the Maryborough school was anything to go by.

State, Wide Bay, Fraser District and Maryborough champions were all honoured.

Winner of the race to win the Team of the Year award was the 16 boy’s volleyball team.

The talented team won the silver medal at the National Schools Cup in Melbourne and backed that up by winning gold in the open honours division in the Queensland Schools Cup.

One member of the volleyball team, Tyler McKenna, crowned off a triumphant year by being named the Sportsman of the Year.

McKenna, represented Wide Bay in three sports, Fraser District in two and was also an age swimming champion.

Athletics age champion Claire Bailey is the Sportswoman of the Year.

In the junior ranks, Junior Sportswomen of the Year was Brooke Wood while Junior Sportsman of the Year was Mitchell Seefus.
