Year 8 student Teneille M set a new record in the 800m race at the recent ACS (Association of Co-educational Schools) Athletics Championships held at Albert Park’s Lakeside Stadium.

Teneille ran the race in 2:27.12 seconds, just five seconds in front of Matisse L, also Year 8, who placed second.

Her new time shaved five seconds off the former ACS record.

Teneille also placed equal first overall in the individual rankings for the championships. Beaconhills performed extremely well, with five other students also ranking in the top 20: Matisse L, Taryn J, Mitchell M, Jaxon B and Cameron D.

The 800m result was also a four second improvement on her own personal best time, Teneille said.

“I didn’t have a strategy going into the race – it was just to get out fast, early, to make sure I didn’t get caught in the clutter at the beginning of the race,” she said.

Her next event is the Victorian All Schools Cross Country Championships held at Bundoora Park in late June.

Earlier this year she competed for Victoria in the Australian Junior Championships held in Sydney, placing ninth in the Under 15 girls 2000m steeple chase.
