Records tum­ble

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE past sev­eral weeks, Tiny Tots Piper Bartlett, Sophie Cikursch, Jessica Holthouse, Annabella Le­mon, Callum Bak, Ni­cholas Haggett, Vin­nie Vella, Matthias Wes­sel, Mila An­der­son, Amy Bak, Shan­tara McAu­ley, An­gus DeJong and Slate Emms have seen sev­eral long­stand­ing cen­tre records fall.

A new­comer this sea­son, young un­der-6 Saskia Bas­sett stole the show at the Hal­loween night meet with a 12.9s sprint over 70m break­ing a 10-year record by 1.5secs, jointly held by Rhia Blair and Si­mone Man­ski.

Not happy hav­ing her record beaten, now U16 com­peti­tor Si­mone Man­ski came home in 27.8secs in the 200m, beat­ing her sis­ter Re­becca (09/10) and Katy Cole’s (11/12) record.

Last sea­son state qual­i­fier Luke Adam­son (U10) col­lected his first cen­tre record when he crossed the 800m fin­ish line, only to re­peat the same event two weeks later, break­ing his own record by a fur­ther 1.8secs. The record is now 2.52.6.

Hav­ing tasted record suc­cess, Luke added his other favourite dis­tance event to the CR tally when he beat the 08/09 sea­son’s 400m record held by Lach­lan Walker. Luke fin­ished in 1min 15.8secs.

U14 Tyler Macdon­ald made a mark last sea­son, col­lect­ing three U13 cen­tre records. He added the U14 70m dash to that tally when he crossed the line at the Novem­ber 7 meet in 9.3secs.

With 36 ath­letes com­bin­ing to achieve 82 per­sonal bests, coach Wills’ open invitation to achieve a com­bined 100 PBs in one meet night seems to have in­spired the ath­letes.
