THERE may have been only a 35% at­ten­dance rate on the first night back for Isis District Lit­tle Athletics on Fri­day, Jan­uary 15, but it was not with­out some amaz­ing per­sonal bests be­ing recorded – a to­tal of 25, in front of vis­it­ing ex-mem­ber Jack Ran­dell.

Top achiev­ers in­clude U14 Shae Cochrane, along with U6s Cay­den Mug­geridge and Ali­cia Ebert, with three PBs apiece.

The night started off well with all U6s record­ing per­sonal bests in their 200m track event.

Cay­den also gained a PB in 70m and vor­tex, and Ali­cia gained her ad­di­tional PBs in vor­tex and long jump.

U14 Shae recorded her per­sonal bests in the 100m, high jump and in a gain of 11cm in shot put.

Most no­table im­prove­ments came from U8 Danny Thurlow and Eli­jah McLaren-Gates in long jump, with 48cm and 47cm gains re­spec­tively.

Brother Isa­iah McLaren-Gates (U10) crossed the 800m fin­ish line 17.9 sec­onds faster in 3:42.0.

U13 John Bauer starred, with his 93cm shot put in­crease land­ing at 5.35m.

Sun­day af­ter­noon saw a small num­ber of par­ents at­tend an event tech­niques in­for­ma­tion ses­sion at the shed while ath­letes un­der­took some long jump prac­tice.

Coach Wills ex­plained the var­i­ous tech­niques and some of the finer “un­known” points of all Lit­tle Athletics events to age group man­agers (par­ents).

He also high­lighted what counted as a DQ (dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion) and what didn’t.

PHO­TOS: JODIE DIXON
