St Mary’s shines at HPV challenge in Ipswich

ST MARY'S College Maryborough dominated the Ipswich Willowbank Raceway track at the RACQ All Schools Pedal Prix, taking out three of the four events it contested.

The human powered vehicle challenge saw the open boys team, Bazinga Boys, win the overall competition, with the open mixed team, Synergy, and open girls teams, Bazinga Girls, winning their division.

Bazinga Boys team member Marcus Boge said their win was more special because the majority of the team was in Year 10.

"It felt great seeing we were only juniors," he said.

"The speed and the sportsmanship between the teams is great.

"The hardest thing is going on when you're worn out."

Synergy team member Mikaella Valehzuela said her team did really well too.

"We came first in our category and third overall," she said.

"I enjoy the competitiveness and wanting to win."

Ms Valehzuela said the competition was great practice in the lead up to next month's Maryborough Technology Challenge.

"It's not as long but you still get to go out and experience what it's like on the day at the technology challenge," she said.
