On 19 September, Moreton Bay College stretched its domination of QGSSSA athletics to a fourth year, after a remarkable day of elite competition at the Queensland Sports and Athletics Centre.

On a day which saw records fall left, right and centre, Moreton Bay College led the competition from the early morning until the finish to claim The Stephens Cup.

The only time they were behind was after the opening race of the day when St Margaret’s Anglican Girls’ School claimed the first event — the Open 3000m, but from that moment on MBC powered forward and were never caught.

Head of Co-Curriculum Peter Foster said the secret to the MBC’s longevity at the top was “a comprehensive programme and developing athletes from a young age.”

“We have a depth of skills and programme, and a large base of participation over many years” he said.

He also praised “wonderful coaching staff’’ headed by Director of Sport Sue Pavish and her team.

Many hours of training and hard work certainly paid off, with MBC winning by over 200 points, winning Premierships in 12 Years, 13 Years, 14 Years and 16 Years, achieving 30 1st places and 30 2nd places, and also placing in the relays.
