Jesse’s a record breaker

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata Col­lege stu­dent of the week is year 11 stu­dent Jesse Holdsworth.

Jesse is an ac­com­plished sports­man and per­formed with dis­tinc­tion in the Mata­mata Col­lege Ath­let­ics Champs the week be­fore last, fin­ish­ing sec­ond over­all in the In­ter­me­di­ate Boys. His ef­forts in the long jump were one of the high­lights of the cham­pi­onships.

Jump­ing 6.26 me­tres, he blitzed the old record by about 15 cen­time­tres and, amaz­ingly, broke the record three times on his way to win­ning the event. Jesse’s prow­ess ex­tends to the rugby field, where he is an out­stand­ing out­side back. Jesse is also a keen crick­eter when work com­mit­ments al­low. Sport sci­ence and English are his favourite sub­jects and the fu­ture looks bright for Jesse, who al­ways works hard and tries his best.
