CARLY Cooper broke two records as her house Campbell won the overall athletics title at yesterday's Assumption College Athletics Carnival.

After some events were held late last week and on Monday, Hamilton Oval was the venue for the final day of athletics.

Cooper has been to state championships in cricket, polocrosse, football and athletics and looks like she may be heading to Brisbane again after breaking javelin and shot put records at Assumption.

She broke the open javelin record by 3.83 metres and the shot put record by 1.5m.

Cooper will now compete in the Warwick All School Sports Carnival and is odds on to qualify for the annual Darling Downs Championships.

"Athletics is just a bit of fun ... my main sports are polocrosse and cricket," she said.

Campbell House won yesterday's sports to record four wins in Cooper's five years at the college.

Murphy House won the Lee Gunderman Trophy for house spirit and the relay trophy after scoring 168 points, eight ahead of Campbell and Doody which finished on 160.

There were some close battles for age championships with Joe Morris scoring 91 points in the open division to win by three from James Breen.

Maddy Farrell beat Grace Parsons by three points for the 13-years age championship for girls. Parsons won the Dean Bergin Memorial Trophy for most points by a runner-up.

Assumption 14-years age champion Will Gordon scored two more points than runner-up Jake Willett.

For the students of Killarney state school the results were yet to come as yesterday marked the beginning of their two day athletics carnival extravaganza.

The smaller school of 200 students competed in the relay races; 800m and high jump with the expectation take on sprints Thursday.

Assumption age champions: Taegan Inmon, Maddy Farrell, Will Gordon, Bronte Le Sueur, Mitch Watson, Joelle Natividad, Travis McArthur, Dimity Brackin, Joe Morris and Sarah Tansky. Runners-up: Nick Mansfield, Grace Parsons, Jake Willett, AJ Ryan, Hayden Aspinall, Melissa Ramsey, Jack Fletcher, Bec Lane, James Breen and Carly Cooper.
