The State Championships Zones Athletics was held at Santich Park on the weekend of February 17/18 2018. With lots of amazing talent travelling near and far, they competed in one final weekend for ages 8’s and under, also allowing ages 9’s and up to qualify for States at HBF Stadium in 2 weeks time.
Kingdom Koia (U/7 boys) received his very first state medals at the event. He received a gold medal in discus, throwing a new personal best of 17.40m. He also received a gold medal in shot put, with a new personal best of 6.05m.
Palace Koia (U/9 girls) qualified in three events, securing her spot at States competing against the top athletes in WA. The events she qualified in are hurdles, 70m and shot put.
It has been a very exciting season for them both and they are looking forward to starting their winter sports with training commencing this week. Kingdom will be playing rugby league and Palace is gearing up for her netball season. Good luck from everyone at Phoenix!
