Lawrence on fast track to success
FOR Centaur Public School student Lawrence Miles-Mwangangi, life is a ball.
The Year 6 student has a tremendous eye and excels in all sports he has played involving a ball - cricket, tennis, table tennis and softball.
Lawrence shines on the cricket pitch, where his skills at the top of the batting order have earned him a position in the South-East Queensland team to contest the Queensland Primary Schools Intra-State Champions carnival at Tingalpa early next month.
The SEQ team was selected following the regional championships, which involved district teams from Tweed, Ipswich/West Moreton, Beaudesert and Beenleigh/Logan.
A dashing 41 not out opening the innings against Beaudesert ensured Lawrence would grab one of the opening batsmen spots in the SEQ squad.
Lawrence started playing Milo cricket at the age of five and now plays for South Tweed Colts every weekend.
He says he likes to play cricket because you can do your best as an individual sportsman but also work together as a member of a team.
Not only does Lawrence excel in the sporting arena - he is also a model student, whose friendly demeanour and academic achievements were rewarded by him being appointed Centaur PS's boys' captain this year.
