51 PBs set by ath­letes

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

THE smoke drift­ing across the show­grounds from the con­trolled burn at the pri­mary school on Fri­day night was no de­ter­rent for the 61 ath­letes and their quest to achieve as many per­sonal bests as pos­si­ble.

A to­tal of 51 PBs were recorded, with brother and sis­ter Dan (U6) and Am­ber (U10) Bauer both record­ing per­sonal bests in all of their four events.

Their PB tally was closely fol­lowed by U8 Eli­jah Mclaren Gates and U15 Joseph Thur­low with 3 apiece.

Most per­sonal bests, 30, came on the track.

Im­prove­ments ranged from 0.1sec to a mas­sive 18.6sec by U9 Natalyia Mcau­ley when she crossed the 400m fin­ish line in 1:54.9.

Track events may have scooped the PB num­bers but it was in field events where the ath­letes shone.

Per­sonal bests in the field events were:

U6 D Bauer +20cm long jump; +60cm shot put

U7 S Bas­sett +1.43m dis­cus throw

U8 J Smith +1.28m dis­cus throw

U8 M Ebert +2.22m dis­cus throw

U10 J Duguid +77cm dis­cus throw

U10 A Bauer +97cm dis­cus throw; +19cm shot put

U10 O Bas­sett +72cm dis­cus throw

U11 L Adam­son +6cm high jump

U12 B John­son +2.27m javelin throw

U15 J Thur­low +33cm long jump

U15 J Lane +1.09m dis­cus throw
