Steeplechase highlights second last round

IBS will have its final round of competition for the summer season next Sunday, but the competition on the track last weekend was of a very high standard.  Full fields took part in most events and it was the steeplechase field of 19 competitors that impressed.  The club is seeing a group of talented young junior athletes who may well and truly develop into strong contenders in this event, but it was the overall enjoyment that athletes showedto all their events that was a highlight of the meet.

U16 athlete Ashley Hogg may have found her event, with a great round of hammer throwing and with more coaching in this event, it could be her best event. Jonty Faulkner is coming good when it counts and his 100m on Sunday was one of his best for this talented young man. Masters athlete Sarah Guevara impressed in the high jump, with Jamie Deegan also showing that he would be a threat in masters men's competition

A return to the track of Dave McCann in the sprints was impressive with McCann hoping that his long list of injuries has come to a halt and he can progress again through Masters competition.

This season has seen a fabulous response by Little A's members and our thanks are extended to members of Dapto, Albion Park and Kiama who have supported and responded to Dual registration and have now become very important members of IBS.

With the track resurfacing to take place first week of March, Blue Stars will wind up next Sunday withround 4 of competition, but many of the club's athletes will be gearing themselves up for the major meets of State and National titles, with coaches making alternative arrangements for training purposes.  If in doubt please call Valmai on 4262 8498.
