Childers’ lit­tle cham­pi­ons

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

OVER the week­end, 35 lo­cal ath­letes rep­re­sented the Isis District Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre at the Cen­tral Coast Re­gional Cham­pi­onships held in Bund­aberg.

The squad per­formed very well de­spite prepa­ra­tions be­ing dis­rupted by weather in re­cent weeks.

The high­light of the week­end came in the un­der 10s boys 800-me­tre race where Isis claimed all three medals.

Joey Vella led from start to fin­ish with a dom­i­nant run and was then fol­lowed across the line by team mates James Duguid and Isa­iah McLaren-Gates.

Shot put coach Justin Lewis can be very proud of his throw­ers with Jack­son Re­hbein, Ab­bie Gar­ri­son and Matt Haaksma all claim­ing gold medals.

Luke Adam­son ran a very strong race in the 400 me­tres, clock­ing a time of 1.10.0, only 1.4 se­cond out­side the re­gional record. Danielle Adam­son showed great skill in dis­cus to win the gold medal.

Lily Vella con­tin­ued to shine with five medals from five events.

She will now start pre­par­ing for the Queens­land Cham­pi­onships in March.

It is ex­pected that many of her club mates will also be se­lected to com­pete in Bris­bane next month.
