Young ath­letes kick­ing goals

Mansfield Courier - - Sport - By MON­ICA MOSKET

LIT­TLE Ath­let­ics this week started off with high winds, happy kids and plenty of par­ent helpers.

With the wind soon dis­ap­pear­ing, we en­joyed a great meet with most events run­ning smoothly around Lords Oval. Our new un­der 6 crew did a stel­lar job to fit in an ex­tra event for the night led by their fan­tas­tic team leader Suzie Roberts.

Lots of the youngest ath­letes gained their first three per­sonal bests - way to go un­der 6s.
