Break­ing all records in lit­tle ath­let­ics

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

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.
