Rostrevor College Track and Field champion Thomas Griffiths (Yr 8) was named "Athlete of the Meet" at the Little Athletics State Championships in March after winning gold in the under 14 100m, 200m, 400m, high jump and triple jump. He has broken several long-standing track and field records at the College.
Thomas was preparing to compete for SA in the Australian Track and Field Championships in Sydney in late March (in the 100m, 200m, triple jump and 100m relay) until its cancellation due to Covid-19 restrictions. The incredible allrounder has previously represented the State in junior Soccer and AFL sides.
Impressive performances by Rostrevor College student Elliott Murada, 17, in Cycling Australia's under-19 Road National Championships in Ballarat in January cemented his place as one of SA's leading young cyclists. Despite his youth, he was the fastest and highest achieving SA cyclist in his age group and 8th nationally.
Under the guidance of Olympic champion and SASI Head Cycling Coach Brett Aitken, Murada was preparing for April's (cancelled) Oceania Road Championships, with an aim of qualifying for the Junior World Championships, which were to be held in Canada later in the year.
Talented goalkeeper Ryan Borzillo was selected for Football Federation Australia's (FFA) 2020 National Training Centre (NTC) squad following excellent performances at the National Youth Championships in NSW in October. Despite being just 14, the Rostrevor College student joined SA's under-18 futsal team in Sydney for the national championships in January reaching the semi-final. The NTC is recognised as the most direct pathway to national and international competition.
