State cham­pi­ons are back in train­ing

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

LAST week’s Isis District Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club Night proved yet an­other suc­cess­ful night for ath­letes to im­prove on their per­sonal bests in both track and field events.

Two-thirds of com­pet­ing ath­letes record­ing a per­sonal best and a third of th­ese record­ing two PBs.

Most out­stand­ing on the field was U9 Zac Blanch.

Zac’s im­proved 3.71m throw was the long­est PB recorded in the dis­cus arena on a night which saw six of the 10 recorded per­sonal bests in the event be­ing greater than a me­tre.

Other ath­letes that recorded greater than a me­tre in­cluded: U9 Sa­muel Mur­ton +2.89m (11.67m); U10 Os­ric Bas­sett +1.57m (13.80m); U10 Reece Volz +1.79m (17.11m); U12 Daniel Haaksma +1.40m (18.35m); and U16 Matthew Haaksma +2.58m (31.70m).

It was the 800m track event where the Bauer sis­ters, U10 Am­ber and U11 Lily, shone, break­ing their pre­vi­ous per­sonal bests by 8.8secs (3:37.7) and 4.4secs (4:43.6) re­spec­tively.

This Fri­day marks the fi­nal club night for the 2015/16 sea­son.

The fol­low­ing week will see one of Isis District’s largest con­tin­gency of ath­letes at­tend­ing the McDon­ald’s State Cham­pi­onships.

Thirty per cent of our ath­letes will be vy­ing for per­sonal bests in 82 events at Bris­bane’s Nathan Sta­dium over three days start­ing Fri­day, March 18.

Last Sun­day, the State Cham­pi­onship Squad held their an­nual pre-cham­pi­onship squad train­ing ses­sion at Woodgate Beach.

The rain didn’t de­ter nor hin­der their train­ing ef­forts as they swam and ran whilst build­ing the away team spirit.
