LAST weekend 14 athletes
from Wonthaggi Little Athlet-
ics Club competed at the State
Track and Field Champion-
ships in Cranbourne.
This level of competition is a large
step-up from what most of our athletes
are used to and so just qualifying for
the championships is a huge achieve-
ment in itself.
Some of our athletes managed to
break into the top eight places for their
events and Wonthaggi even managed to
bag a silver medal.
Tevuro Ihomana Montgomery battled
rain and strong winds to throw 21.12 me-
tres in the Under 11 girls javelin event,
earning her second place on the podium.
She also came eighth in the 70 metre
sprint and sixth in the 60m hurdles, once
again breaking the club record in that
event with a time of 10.39 seconds. She
also threw in the discus event.
Baia Pugh (U9G) came seventh in the
70m sprint and fifth in the 800m, break-
ing the club record for the middle dis-
tance event with a time of 2:52.03 .
She also competed in the triple jump
and 400m sprint.
Georgia Dakin (U11G) had an out-
standing weekend in her first year of
competition. She came fifth in the high
jump, breaking the Under 11 Club record
with a height of 1.30 metres.
She also came fifth in the long jump
with an impressive distance of 4.21
However her triple jump performance
was remarkable in that although she
came twelfth overall, she also managed
to break the Under 11 club record with a
distance of 8.81 metres.
She also ran in the 100m sprint and
finished the weekend with four PBs.
Rachel Aitkin (U14G) jumped well to
come seventh in the high jump competi-
tion, clearing the bar at 1.45 metres.
Overall, the club performed well with
many PBs and great exposure to top level
Other athletes who competed over the
weekend were Maya Fraser and Ashton
Hewitson (javelin), Ella Smith (walks),
Kade Rigby (shot put), Tyler Butcher
(jumps), Nicola Slade (high jump), James
Lewis, Marli Carter, Saher Biggs and
Shontelle O’Connor (sprints) and Sandra
Gray (walks and high jump).
