Harvey’s junior running brigade dominated the podium at a State championship event last month — snaring seven gongs.

The four sub-junior teams and two junior teams shone at the WA Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service State Championships in North Fremantle on November 26 and 27.

The brigade claimed sub-junior champion fireman, junior champion fireman, overall wet aggregate, overall dry aggregate, champion junior brigade and champion sub-junior brigade titles.

In addition to those achievements, the runners were also awarded the overall champion brigade of the event.

“We killed it up there. It was really good,” 17-year-old Harvey representative Rhys Landwehr said.

The brigade had been training for the tournament since the beginning of this year and will now start preparing for the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service National Championships in Victoria.

Landwehr said the runners were determined to do well at the tournament held in Tatura on February 25 and 26.

“Nationals should be a lot of fun and really test our skills,” Landwehr said.

The junior running brigade will be raising money to rent a bus while in Victoria through different different initiatives, including an upcoming fundraiser to be held at the Binningup Fishing Club.
