Congratulations to Jackson Tierney who has been elected as the 2020 Sports Captain. The Lavalla student is a keen Cross Country and Athletics runner and has represented the College in both sports during his time at Marcellin.
Athletic season follows shortly after the Cross Country, so he quickly swaps his cross country spikes for a pair of track spikes and just keeps training. When asked about his best achievement so far within the program he spoke highly of the 2019 success of both Cross Country and Athletics teams which both won Premierships. Jackson went on to say I was part of the Athletics team which finally won the premiership after a 51-year drought however I also take pride in contributing to the Cross Country team, which has successfully won 20 AGSV premierships in a row.
Jackson will be a fantastic role model as the 2020 Sport Captain. When asked what he was looking forward to most he replied with the following. Continuing the rich vein of our sporting tradition and success. As well as being able to meet more boys, see them take part in the sport community and meet new mates whilst enjoying the respective sports they play.
As a senior student who has competed in a lot of sport his advice to junior students is simple. Don’t be afraid to try something new, Marcellin offers you plenty of opportunities so make use of them. Just go out there, give it a shot and have fun.
We wish Jackson well for the sporting year ahead.
