Echuca College students James Brown and Lachlan Arkinstall have been selected in the School Sport Victoria Team Vic 19 Years and Under Football Team competing in the School Sport Australia Australian Football Championships to be held at Perth, WA from 20-26 August, 2016.
It has been a great performance by James and Lachlan following a selection process that began in March to make the final team of 16. The team comprises students from all over Victoria.
The student competed in a series of competitions to gain selection in the School Sport Victoria State Team.
Many past School Spot Victoria team members have gone onto compete at national and international competitions including Olympic Games, World Championships and Commonwealth Games.
So here’s hoping that James, Lachlan and their Victorian teammates can achieve their personal goals at a national level to win the Australian title and that both James and Lachlan may be representing Australia in the years to come.
