The 2017 Women in Sport Breakfast was a huge success, with over 938 attendees from schools across South-East Queensland. Highlights of the morning were the presentation of the Queensland Schoolgirl Athlete of the Year and interviews with elite female athletes, Lucky Patterson, Kate McCarthy and Lucy Stirling.  This event provides recognition of the incredible sporting talent amongst women and girls in Queensland.

We awarded the UQ HMNS Inspirational HPE Teacher of the year and  we had a fantastic response to the inaugural Queensland Government #activegirlsinschool Video Competition. We capped the morning off with a super-sized, speed mentoring session for 100 of the senior students attending the Breakfast. 


Minister with Riley & Jemma webcopy.jpg

This year the judges were unable to decide on only one winner so they decided to award two amazing young women as the 2017 Qld Schoolgirl Athlete of the Year - Riley Day from Beaudesert State High School and Jemma Punch from Brisbane State High School. Here is a snapshot of the achievements of our two recipients.

Riley Day

Riley has had a phenomenal 12 months on the track. After winning the 100meters and breaking the record for the 200meters at the All Schools State Championships in October last year, Riley went on to break meet records for both events at the Australian All School Championships in December. Currently ranked No 1 in Australia for Under 18s and Under 20s for both the 100meters and 200meters, Riley was also the flag bearer for the Australian team at the 2017 Youth Commonwealth Games where she won the 200meters and mixed relay and came second in the 100meters. Riley is currently ranked No. 2 in the World for Under 18s 200meters.

Jemma Punch

Jemma has proven herself an elite athlete in three different sports. Having extended Years 11 and 12 out across three years, she is determined to continue excelling both at school and on the field. In Rugby 7s, Jemma is currently playing for both her school and the Under 18s Queensland Reds team. In Hockey, she plays for both the Australian School Team and the Under 18s Queensland Team. Finally, in Softball, Jemma has represented Queensland in the Under 17s Team, the Australian School Team and has been named to the Under 19s Australian Squad.
