Junior athletes shine on track
TINY Tots Piper Bartlett, Jessica Holthouse, Charlie Richards, Vinnie Vella, Matthias Wessel, Slate Emms, Cayden Muggeridge, Shantara McAuley and Jason Sopronick watched on as another record week of personal bests was recorded at Childers Showgrounds.
The 42 athletes competing on the night combined to better their personal bests an impressive 91 times.
Haaksma brothers Matthew (U15) and Daniel (U11), along with U14 Jenny Freshwater, ended the night with four PBs each, while a further 12 athletes recorded three apiece.
Centre manager Kerri Wills named Matthew Haaksma the Athlete of the Week for his work behind the scenes.
“He always puts in his best effort during events and is a great role model for our younger athletes,” Wills said.
