Western Zone Athletics Champs
A small number of athletes were able to compete in the rescheduled Western Zone Athletics Championship held on Tues 16th March.
The highlights of the day were:
- Will Anthony winning the senior boys 1500m taking 4seconds off the 44 year old record held by his coach. Will’s time of 3.54.39 was a PB – an amazing effort given it was a solo run and held in windy conditions.
- Hugo Jones also set a PB, winning the intermediate boys high jump. His jump of 1.85m was considerably higher than the winning jump in the senior boys grade. He then headed straight to the long jump and finished 3rd in 5.28m.
- Wynn Skinner won the senior boys triple jump (11.95m) and placed 2nd in the long jump (5.86m)
- Jonathan Lei was 3rd in the senior boys shot put (10.66) PB
- Calum Koebergh easily won his senior boys 100m heat (11.52) and backed up with a solid run in the finals to finish 2nd.
- Liam Kennedy finished 2nd in the intermediate boys 100m heats (12.03) which qualified him for the finals. He also finished 4th in 200m finals (25.48)
- Lucy Price was 4th in her junior girls 100m heat which qualified her for the finals.
Well done to all the athletes who competed
