Records fall en masse

IT WAS a jam-packed day for school sports on Hamilton Oval, where teams from Warwick State High School, Clifton State School, Assumption College, Scots PGC College, Allora State School and Killarney State School enjoyed some friendly competition.

Boys age champions for the day included Justyn Rogers from Warwick State High School for 13 years and under, Jordan Piovesan, again from WSHS, for the 14 years, Allora's Jack Bannister won the 15 years, Brent Walker from WSHS won the 16 years and Ty Gardner from WSHS was the 17 years and over champion.

Scots PGC College claimed the Montrose Junior Girls Cup with 404 points, and Allora took home their P&C Overall School Average trophy with 5.551 points, narrowly beating Killarney.

It seems students from Warwick State High School were the leading champions for the trophies, winning the senior girls Montrose Cup with 311 points, plus both the junior girls and boys E.J Portley Relay trophies, the senior relays for the boys and girls, as well as the Appel Challenge Cup for both the junior and senior boys.

A total of 11 new records were broken.

Erin Thornton beat the old record of 24.97m when she threw 29.63m for the 17-18 years javelin, Adrienne Geary threw a 12.84m shot beating the 9.44m record for the 16-years, Jordan Siebenhausen threw 56.82m, which beat the 17/18 years javelin record at 52.11m, and Carly Cooper set a new record of 24.07m for the 16-years javelin, previously 19.97m.
