Cairns comp suc­cess

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

FOUR young ath­letes from the Isis District Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre trav­elled to Cairns to com­pete at the IGA State Cham­pi­onships. For three ath­letes this was their de­but at state com­pe­ti­tion.

Austin Cross­land made the trip to Cairns for his third con­sec­u­tive state cham­pi­onships.

His best re­sult came in the triple jump event where he placed 14th with a per­for­mance of 8.20 me­tres. He scored three other top twenty re­sults with solid per­for­mances in long jump, dis­cus and 1500 me­tre race.

Lily Bauer’s best re­sult from her five events came in the 60 me­tre hur­dles race. Held in rainy con­di­tions, Lily held on well to se­cure 15th place over­all.

She also placed in the top twenty in high jump and the 200 me­tres.

Ella Blanch’s per­for­mances in her sprint events show an ever grow­ing po­ten­tial. Ella placed 13th in the 70 me­tres and 14th in 200 me­tres.

The ex­pe­ri­ence of high level com­pe­ti­tion has al­ready in­spired her to set goals for next sea­son.

Luke Adam­son made a last minute de­ci­sion to con­test hur­dles at the re­gional cham­pi­onships where he gained a qual­i­fier for the state cham­pi­onships.

Luke placed 16th over­all in his hur­dles event to show that he has plenty to of­fer in this dis­ci­pline but it was his pet event where he con­tin­ued to shine.

Bring­ing home the club’s best re­sult for the cham­pi­onships, Luke placed 9th in the 800m race, only miss­ing a spot in the fi­nal by 8 hun­dredths of a sec­ond.
