A small band of Cooma Athletics Centre members travelled to Narooma on the weekend for a carnival and came away with fourth place.
The team comprised of nine athletes, U/7 Stephen Davis, U/8 boys Charlie Alcock and Christian Zusak, U/9 Ruben Hooper, U/10 boys Jordan Davis and Troy Rees, U/11 Summer Rees and Nicholas Zusak plus U/12 girl Alyssa Zusak. No results were available at the time of printing.
Regional championships are just over one month away. Entry forms are available from next Thursday Night. Please have the entries returned to the Centre by February 14 so the team can be finalised. If everyone is available this season we should have a very strong team to take on the Canberra Centres.
Heat wave conditions last Thursday caused the centre to cancel the second Summer Multi/Handicap meet.
The summer series will continue this Thursday with the normal weekly competition resuming January 31.
In other carnival news young U/7 Alex Wood attended Woden Club Carnival and came home with several Personal Best performances. Alex picked up three PB's on the day, in the Discus with heave of 10.12 mts, another one for his effort at the Long Jump with a leap of 2.62 mts and finally over the 200 mts with nearly a 5 second improvement by clocking 47.52 seconds. In other events Alex was close to his top performances, 100 mts clocking 20.85 sec and `70 mts 14.12 sec.
This Thursday competition consists of 70 mts, Shot Put, 50 mts Javelin (Turbo, Vortex and Jav for respective age groups) and finally 200 mts.
The Christmas Hamper was won by Beryl Wilkinson.
