Last weekend, it was the Athletics NSW Junior Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre (SOPAC). There were some great performances throughout the weekend from Scots.

James Kotis (Year 12) stole the show, producing a quality performance in the Men 110m Hurdles 99.1cm U20, to claim a silver medal in 14.64s. This enables James to compete against the best and helps him, hopefully, gain a world junior qualifying time – which he is not too far off!

James continued to produce great results on Saturday, with a personal best in the Men 100m Sprint U20, in a time of 11.21s. Afterwards, he returned to the College to participate in his main Summer Sport of Cricket.

James returned to SOPAC on Sunday, to race in the Men 200m Sprint U20, where he claimed 6th spot in the final, with a time of 22.44s. James is a great athlete who is always happy to support Athletics and younger athletes coming through. He is proud to wear The Scots College singlet and should be very pleased with his progress. Well done, James!

Director of Athletics and Cross Country
