Ath­letes end the year on high note

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

LIT­TLE Ath­let­ics mem­bers at­tended the Childers Show­ground on Sun­day for their fi­nal meet night be­fore break­ing for the hol­i­days.

The break-up capped off a big week­end, after a smash­ing re­sult at the Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Re­gional Pen­tathlon held in Glad­stone on Satur­day. The fi­nal pen­tathlon re­sults are still com­ing in and will be re­ported when avail­able.

Tiny tots Piper Bartlett, Annabella Le­mon, Charlie Richards, Shan­tara McAu­ley and Charli Mur­ton watched as un­der-8 Natalyia McAu­ley con­tin­ued her good form, achiev­ing three per­sonal bests along with sib­lings Thomas (U9) and Beth John­son (U11).

U8 Danielle Adam­son put in an in­spir­ing per­for­mance with her 60m hur­dle run and 3.6sec per­sonal best in the 200m leg.

U10 Max Banks showed prom­ise in javelin when he achieved a new per­sonal best on his turbo javelin throw by 45cm.

Four­teen ath­letes lined up for the fi­nal meet event, the 800m, where U9 Thomas John­son sliced 0.2secs off his pre­vi­ous time and U14 Jenny Fresh­wa­ter chopped a mas­sive 10.8secs from her’s. The evening fin­ished with teams of four rac­ing for the fi­nal prize of Life-Savers medals in the mixed re­lay event, sausage siz­zle and icy poles, fol­lowed by var­i­ous im­promptu group games ar­ranged by as­sis­tant coach Si­mone Man­ski.

Coach Wills said the com­mit­tee looked for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one back at the show­grounds on Jan­uary 16.
