On the subject of School Athletes there have been some very solid performances in the recently held Zone and Regional titles for both our High school and Primary school level. Sprinter Jonty Faulkner has starred over the 100, 200 and 400metres whilst Natasha Hynoski has also been impressive over the same distances. Charlotte Smith and Emma Matthews have turned her attention to the sprints and have shown tremendous improvement over the short distances. The Adams girls, Ashlyn and Grace have continued their strong Little A’s and Club form into the school carnivals. Very solid runs by both girls at the IBS Winter meet is an indication both will be a force in Canberra for Regionals.
The club walkers have also been impressive in the winter with top 10 performances by Hayley Kolts and Rhys Barnes in the recent ANSW Short Walks State titles. We will be keeping our eyes on them in the School championships where they are also sure to impress.
