On Friday and Saturday, the 17th and 18th of March, four of our Wynberg stars travelled to Paarl to compete in the Western Cape Championships athletics meet as representatives of the Western Province Team.

Our girls competed in a total of seven events, with Lara Johnson coming second in both of her races – namely the 100m and 200m sprints. Lara’s wonderful achievements have led to her being selected to represent the Western Cape Team at Nationals next week in Kwa-Zulu Natal where she will be competing against the very best athletes in each province.

Well done to Beth Goode, who came 7th and 8th for the 3000m and 1500m races respectively, as well as Gina Walker who competed in the High Jump and Triple Jump and Jessica Petersen who also took part in the Triple Jump.

Congratulations to our amazing athletes for working so hard and making it this far in the competition – and a massive good luck to Lara! We are beyond proud!
