ISIS District Little Athletics returns to the Childers showgrounds tomorrow for a Week 3 program of events following its Christmas break.
Club night before the break was dubbed a success in both jumping and throwing events, with a new centre record reached for the U9 boys shot put as well as an equalling of the U13 girls long jump record.
The U9 boys shot put record held by Austin Crossland since 2011/12 at 6.44m was broken not once but twice on the final night of club competition on December 11, 2015.
The new centre record holder is Zac Blanch, who exceeded the previous record by 0.46m when his shot landed at 6.90m.
U13 Jackie Freshwater was none the wiser when she equalled Kathryn Cole’s 2007/08 long jump record of 4.24m until final results were entered.
The club now returns for its regular Friday night competitions in readiness for the coming State Championship qualifying Central Coast Regional Championships being held at the Bundaberg Athletics Facility over the first weekend in February.
Jackie Freshwater has added her name to the record table.
Zac Blanch now holds the record in shot put.
