Great start for Little A’s season
THE Isis District Little A’s club has started their season with a bang.
Luke Adamson has produced an outstanding run to break a club record.
The under-12s 800m record set by Bradley Cole stood for 10 years until Luke took almost five seconds off his mark last Friday night.
Newcomer to the club, Ellehra Wilkin, has shown she is an athlete to watch with a great performance in turbo javelin.
Also new to the club is Tex Adams.
He has already made great improvements in his technique and results across a range of events.
Young gun Vinnie Vella recently broke two sprint records at the Gympie Spring Carnival and is already within striking distance of a number of Isis club records.
He is set for a big season in the U6 age group.
The biggest news to come out of Friday night was the start of the season for the newly formed Queensland Athletics Club.
The Little A’s club is now affiliated with both governing bodies and can offer athletics to not just children but adults as well.
Assistant club coach Justin Lewis was in fine form early with an excellent performance in triple jump, easily sailing past the 10 metre mark.
Local school teacher Matt Hollett caught the spectators’ attention with a blistering run in the 100 metre sprint.
Meanwhile, club coach Justin Lewis caught up with Olympic discus throwers Matt Denny and Julian Wruck at the recent Gympie Spring Carnival.
Registrations are still being taken for all athletes.
