Vanessa competed very well at the WA All Schools back in October and again at the Athletics WA State Championships held just recently
She is another Melville middle distance runner who rarely misses a session and is just a model athlete at training
Vanessa’s ability to knock out her interval repeats at a near identical time is quite extraordinary and makes her a coaches dream
Top stuff Vanessa!!
