All in a day’s work for Chase

The Riverine Herald - - LOCAL CLASSIES - By An­drew John­ston

IT’S a chal­lenge to even get to a na­tional cham­pi­onships.

And to fin­ish in the top 10 in the na­tion is a ma­jor achieve­ment.

That’s the re­al­ity for lo­cal Chase Day.

After her se­cond-placed fin­ish at the Vic­to­rian pri­mary school ath­let­ics cham­pi­onships, Day went to com­pete at the na­tional ti­tles in her best dis­ci­pline, high jump.

All three mem­bers of the Vic­to­rian team that Day had com­peted against at the state cham­pi­onships would fin­ish in the top 10 of the event on No­vem­ber 25.

Day fin­ished the event in eighth spot after clear­ing 1.40 me­tres, while team­mates Rose Jones and Ad­di­son Stevens would share fifth place with jumps of 1.45m.
