Jesse’s a record breaker
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.
