State champions are back in training
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.
