Black Fri­day no force on tiny tots

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE STRONG head­wind blow­ing up the fi­nal 100m straight at the Childers Show­grounds was the only “bad luck” ath­letes had to en­dure dur­ing their Fri­day the 13th club night.

The winds may have re­sulted in slower track times, but they didn’t seem to bother Tiny Tots So­phie Cikursch, Jes­sica Holt­house, Annabella Lemon, Char­lie Richards, Vin­nie Vella, Scott Wes­sel, Shan­tara McAu­ley, Fisher and Evie Plant.

Ath­lete of the Week was shared by Danielle Adam­son for her marked ath­letic im­prove­ments through ded­i­cated train­ing well be­yond her ju­nior years and Ella Blanch for her grace and hu­mil­ity in victory at last week’s Re­gional Cham­pi­onships.

Fri­day night saw un­der-11 Beth John­son top the per­sonal best tally with four from five events: 400m 1:31.8 (-8secs); dis­cus+0.49m (9.81m); shot­put +0.44m (4.95m) and triple jump +0.23m (6.35m).

Fel­low un­der-11 com­peti­tor Lou Eb­o­rall was next top scorer with 3 per­sonal bests: 100m 17.3secs (-0.4secs); shot­put +0.51m (4.21m) and triple jump +0.22m (6.37m).

Two per­sonal bests were achieved by un­der-8 Cherie Schultz (Vor­tex +1.52m and +0.74m in Dis­cus), un­der-9 Reece Volz (long jump +0.09m and shot­put +0.04m), U9 Os­ric Bas­sett (-3ses in 200m and +0.03m in long jump), un­der-13 Maya Farim­bella (long jump +0.04m and javelin +1.15m), and un­der-14 Jenny Fresh­wa­ter (400m -8.5secs; triple jump +0.18m. Fur­ther PBs: 50m dash: U6 Saskia Bas­sett (-0.1s), U7 Lily Adolf (-0.3s) and U8 Sa­muel Mur­ton (-0.3s). Dis­cus: U7 Tessie Dyer (+0.51m), U12 Brady Hop­kins (+0.10m).
