Many personal bests at Little Athletics

THE PHOENIX HAS LANDED: Phoenix Lachal flies in the long jump at Little Athletics last Friday.

MANSFIELD little athletes arrived early, all dressed in uniform, to gather around and put on their best smiles for this season’s group photo.

On the track competitors enjoyed hurdles, some sprints and a longer distance of 800m.

The under 8s were first up over the hurdles and 11 ran their fastest for the season, while under 12 boys pushed each other all the way crossing the line within half a second of each other, all in personal best times.

Under 6s took on the 100m, Harry Sheeran and Astrid Jackman had a great run both bettering their fastest by more than two seconds.

In the 800m Britney Allen edged closer to the centre record with another personal best run.

Winners were: 80mH Cody Azzopardi, Zoe Greene, Ben Les, Hannah Allen, Roland Kukainis, Tahlia Browning, Bailey Adams, Elise Empey, Dylan Konig, Ellie Herbert, Harrison Van Winden, Brooke Mullins, Britney Allen.
