Nov­elty events to end sea­son

Pilbara News - - Sport - Glen Carter

■ A Kar­ratha Lit­tle Ath­let­ics sea­son comes and goes quickly, with Septem­ber 18 mark­ing the end of the 2015 sea­son.

The last night was a fun-filled oc­ca­sion where the ath­letes par­tic­i­pated in many nov­elty events such as team re­lays, bal­loon pop­ping with javelins and a back-break­ing limbo dance.

It was great to see many par­ents join in the fes­tiv­i­ties as well.

How­ever, there were prob­a­bly a few mums and dads laid up on the couch on Satur­day with tight ham­strings and sore backs.

As the nov­elty events wound up, it was time for a feed, the an­nual meet­ing and the ath­letes’ favourite, the pre­sen­ta­tion.

Am­ber Nielsen in the un­der-eight group won the club cham­pion award.

Am­ber ac­cu­mu­lated the most per­sonal bests over the sea­son and has her name on the tro­phy for 2015.

The club paid trib­ute to ma­jor spon­sors Hori­zon Power, McDon­ald’s and Jet­star who sup­ported KLA for the 2015 sea­son, as well as Keyspot for pro­vid­ing the club tro­phies, Home Hard­ware, Bak­ers De­light, MMA Off­shore, Rio Tinto and the Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try.

The com­mit­tee also thanked the par­ents who as­sisted each Fri­day.
