Young athletes bring home gold medals
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.
