Young ath­letes bring home gold medals

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

TOP per­form­ing young ath­letes took to the field with great force, once again smash­ing records.

The Bur­rum Dis­trict Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club hosted the an­nual Cen­tral Coast re­gional pen­tathlon last Satur­day.

The week­end weather con­di­tions were very hot for the young sports­men and women as the storms threat­ened the af­ter­noon ses­sion of com­pe­ti­tion.

Fif­teen strong and pow­er­ful ath­letes rep­re­sented the Isis Dis­trict club, some com­pet­ing in rep­re­sen­ta­tive com­pe­ti­tion for the first time.

Piper Bartlett and Ni­cholas Man­ski com­peted in the Un­der 6 cat­e­gory and were well pleased with their par­tic­i­pant’s medal­lions.

With points al­lo­cated for per­for­mance across a va­ri­ety of events, the young ath­letes needed to be tal­ented all-rounders to get amongst the medal win­ners.

Tak­ing great pride in their sport, team and club, Shonelle McFar­lane and Luke Adam­son brought home the gold for the lo­cal club, win­ning the un­der 15 and un­der 12 age groups re­spec­tively.

Do­ing just as well and bring­ing home medals, James Duguid (Un­der 11) and Charli Mur­ton (Un­der 7) both col­lected a sil­ver medal in solid per­for­mances across the dis­ci­plines.

Michael Ebert (Un­der 9) con­tin­ues to im­prove and was very happy to col­lect the bronze medal for his age group.

New­comer to the club and mak­ing an im­pact, Tah­nee Dean showed she has plenty of po­ten­tial and with a lit­tle more ex­pe­ri­ence is likely to im­prove on her fourth plac­ing in the fu­ture.

Coaches from the club were pleased with not only the re­sults for each Isis ath­lete but the ma­tu­rity they showed through­out a tough day of com­pe­ti­tion.

WINS: James Duguid and Luke Adam­son.
