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.
