Ath­letes race into car­ni­val

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

AN OVER­FLOW­ING swag of medals and an in­cred­i­ble 37 per­sonal bests were the re­sults of a huge spring car­ni­val for Isis Dis­trict Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club.

The team of 18 ath­letes ex­ceeded all ex­pec­ta­tions as they nabbed 17 gold, 15 sil­ver and eight bronze medals at the Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Queens­land Spring Car­ni­val, which was held in Bund­aberg dur­ing the school hol­i­days.

New­comer Joey Vella ran hard to break the three-minute bar­rier in his 800m win, while sib­lings Jimmy and Tessie Dyer shared wins in their 200m events.

Tal­ented mid­dle dis­tance run­ner Luke Adam­son con­tin­ued his field event de­vel­op­ment in the best pos­si­ble way, win­ning both the hur­dles and high jump.

Isis DLAC mem­bers’ suc­cesses weren’t con­fined to Bund­aberg, as Tom Cole and Si­mone Man­ski trav­elled to Mary­bor­ough’s Day/Night Car­ni­val.

Man­ski had an un­for­get­table week­end as she won all four of her events, while Cole won bronze in the triple jump and fin­ished fourth in his other events.

The next chal­lenge for Isis DLAC mem­bers is the Cen­tral Coast re­gional pen­tathlon, which will be held in Glad­stone on De­cem­ber 6. En­try forms are avail­able at the can­teen on club nights, or email isis­d­lac@gmail.com for more.
