Two young local athletes have competed at Homebush Stadium.
Will Pendergast and Emily Pearce, both in year 6 at St Patrick's Parish School travelled to Sydney recently to take part in the Mckillop Catholic Primary Shool trials, against the best athletes from across NSW Catholic schools.
Will competed in the long jump, where he jumped a personal best of 4.60 metres.
The jump was the third longest but unfortunately for Will, two competitors were tied on 4.62 metres which put him in fourth place, just two centimetres out of the top three.
Emily took part in the discus and threw a distance of just over 20 metres, placing her in seventh out of 16.
It was a great effort by both young athletes for their first time competing at that level.
