Breaking all records in little athletics
CENTRE records keep tumbling on Friday nights at the Isis District Little Athletics club meets held at the Childers Showgrounds.
Last week was no different, with the fifth records for the season being set.
New to the club this season, U10 Abbie Garrigon broke the 2010/11 season discus record of 16.97m by 74cm when on her third attempt she threw 17.71m.
Abbie joins her sister, U13 Kaylee Garrigon, who on October 30 threw her discus 27.06m, breaking her own earlier new season centre record of 24.62m by 2.44m.
Not wishing for the record glory to only be within one family, U9 Cherie Schultz broke the 2011/12 season Turbo Jav record of 10.1m by 1.3m at the November 13 club night comp. That same night U10 Joey Vella took 2.1secs off the 800m record set last season when he crossed the finish line in 2:50.5.
Tiny Tots McKenzie Hamann, Piper Bartlett, Charlie Green, Nicholas Haggett, Charlie Richards, MacKenzie Murton, Jacob Vicary and Braxtin Green continue to enjoy their modified athletics program, enhancing their run, throw and jump co-ordination in readiness for when they move to the junior rankings.
All athletes across all age groups continue to improve their personal bests, with 88 PBs recorded last week and 99 the week before.
Top achieving athletes recording personal bests in all of their events over the past two weeks include U8 Molly Richards, U8 Michael Ebert, U9 Alice Bak, U9 Zac Blanch, U9 Samuel Murton, U10 Isaiah McLaren-Gates, U10 Reece Volz and U11 Luke Adamson.
With only three weeks of competition left before the Christmas break-up, the leader board is looking tight with only six points separating both the top five senior and top five junior age group athletes.
Athletes and their families are asked to start considering their attendance at the state qualifying Regional Championships which will be held in Bundaberg on February 6 and 7. Registrations close on January 15.
