Leongatha athletes hurdle over records
A strong contingent of ultra-keen competitors turned up at the velodrome oval last Saturday for Leongatha Little Athletics Club’s final competition meeting for the season.
Athletes were clearly hitting peak form, with personal best performances achieved en masse across the age groups – a combined 194 PBs were achieved – and three centre records broken.
All three records were set in the 60m hurdles.
Chloe Giliam (Under 7) went one better than the record she set earlier in the season, stopping the clock at 13.95sec, Ella Snell (Under 9) broke a 10-year-old record with a blistering 11.47sec run, and Meaghan Stothart (Under 10) broke a four-year-old record with a sterling 12.06sec effort.
In the PB department, Jasper Shone (Under 6) achieved four PBs from four events, Robbie Reardon (Under 9) and Sebastian Borg (Under 9) both made five PBs from five events, and Jemma Caithness (Under 13) achieved an amazing clean sweep of six PBs from six events.
A number of club members will now go on to the Victorian State Track and Field Championships in Melbourne on March 29-30.
The club’s presentation night will be held on Friday, April 4, at the Leongatha Primary School’s performing arts centre, starting at 5.30pm with a sausage sizzle. Presentations will start at 6pm.
