These four Year 11 sport stars are not your regular teenagers. While busy studying for the school WAIS exams they are also going places fast in the sporting world.

All four have recently returned to school following successful championships across the country in their respective sports.

Ashleigh Grant is a WA champion basketballer who completed in the U18s Women’s Metro State Team. She is also part of the West Coast Waves Development squad.

In March, Phing Teo represented WA at the U17 Nationals in Victoria and has been selected to represent WA at the U19 Nationals in Hobart and the Australia at Nationals in Geraldton later this year.

And it has been a busy couple of months for Kurt Wesley, who competed in the Australian Junior Athletics Championships and the school sport Australian triathlon nationals.

His mate Matthew Pallotta also competed in the Australian Junior athletic Championships for running.

Corpus Christi head of Year 11 Mark Clayden said he was very proud of all four students.
