Lit­tle aths hits its straps

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By SU­SAN McCORMICK

IT was a great night for lit­tle ath­let­ics with ev­ery­one there ready for lots of fun.

At shot put the U10s were flex­ing their mus­cles putting in some big throws, Os­car Guppy record­ing a big PB.

The U6s were also hav­ing their first go at shot put with Paige Gri­d­ley record­ing a big throw to start.

At dis­cus the U12s were hav­ing their first go at javelin, Madi Cronin showed some great early form.

The U11s are work­ing on their spins for the dis­cus and once they land them within the throw zone we are go­ing to see some big throws.

High jump and the U8s and U9s were get­ting their rhythm back, May­belle Van Win­den had the best early form.

Leap­ing into the sand, Daelin Fox and Jack Marks have set them­selves some big jumps to try and bet­ter for a PB later.

As did Lach­lan La­mont and Elise Em­pey in the long jump.

On the track it was a night of sprints.

Liam Smith showed no signs of tired legs af­ter a day of hik­ing speed­ing to the fin­ish in the 100m and 200m.

U11 boys Sam Guppy and Jack Marks pushed each other the whole way in the 200m, set­ting up a great ri­valry for the sea­son.

The U6s de­cided 100m wasn’t enough and did the 200m too - Lily Adams pow­ered home for a great fin­ish in both.

A big thank you to our par­ent helpers and all the ex­tras who stepped in at the last minute for a smoothly run night.

We look for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one again next week and don’t for­get our Bendigo Bank tim­ing sys­tem will be com­ing soon.
