Smash­ing the record books

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

AN­OTHER two records were bro­ken at Lit­tle Ath­let­ics last Fri­day night with Luke Adam­son smash­ing his own record in the 800m race.

With the mark now set at 2:42.0, it could be a long time be­fore the club sees that one bro­ken by an­other ath­lete.

Kaylee Gar­rigon used good tech­nique and strength to break the un­der 14s dis­cus record that was set by Bon­nie Coolee in the 2003/2004 sea­son.

Last week’s su­per­star, Sa­muel Mur­ton put in an­other huge per­for­mance and for the sec­ond week in a row recorded four PBs from four events.

Danita Horner also topped the ta­ble this week record­ing PBs in all four of her events as well.

Se­nior ath­letes Joshua Lane and Luke Adam­son both recorded four PBs from their five events.

The Vella fam­ily were in fine form with all three ath­letes record­ing su­perb re­sults.

Vin­nie has set his sights on the un­der six 200 me­tre record af­ter tak­ing three sec­onds off of his pre­vi­ous best run. Big brother Joey im­proved his 200 me­tre time by more than two sec­onds and Lily added more than two me­tres to her pre­vi­ous turbo javelin mark.

Ella Bartlett is com­ing into good form in hur­dles just in time for the re­gional pen­tathlon which she will com­pete in on Satur­day.

Ella re­duced her PB in sixty me­tre hur­dles by one sec­ond last Fri­day night.

The 200 me­tre races were well con­tested with Cal­lum Bak, Molly Woods and Shonelle McFar­lane all record­ing PBs.

Danita Horner is mak­ing an ex­cel­lent come­back from a long term ill­ness, re­gain­ing her form in the throw­ing events.

Last week she im­proved by more than one me­tre in turbo javelin.

The last race of the night con­tained sev­eral age groups com­bin­ing for the 800 me­tres.

Rac­ing against adults and tal­ented ju­niors, Joshua Lane (un­der 16s) had to pro­duce some­thing spe­cial to fin­ish ahead of the field.

Al­ready a noted mid­dle dis­tance run­ner, Joshua im­proved his time by al­most two sec­onds and lead the other seven­teen com­peti­tors across the line.

In the adults di­vi­sion, Angie Ebert, Matt Hol­lett and Troy Lane topped the PB ta­ble with each record­ing four per­sonal bests from five events.

Andrew Hill and Tricia Heap recorded two PBs each for the night.

Andrew Hill showed plenty of speed on the 100 me­tre track, stop­ping the clock at 13.4 sec­onds.

Club trea­surer, Troy Lane has im­proved his his dis­cus mark by more than two me­tres and Tricia Heap added al­most three me­tres to her PB im­prov­ing the club record.

A squad of Lit­tle A’s mem­bers will travel to Tor­ban­lea on Satur­day for the Cen­tral Coast Re­gional Pen­tathlon.

The team have trained hard with great re­sults.
