GALLERY: Runners race past the records

WARWICK High Students have sprinted, jumped and thrown their way into the record books, with records that have stood for decades tumbling at the school athletics carnival yesterday.

Year 8 student Zac Caterson was among the record breakers, smashing the records for both the 13 years boys' discus and javelin events.

Caterson threw 39.16m in javelin, besting the old record by 6m, and threw a phenomenal 41.17m in discus.

"It's a pretty good feeling," he said.

"The records were quite old I think - it's always great to break an old record."

With nine or 10 records already to his name, Caterson has eyes on the shot put events to be held next term.

Records were also set on the track, with a number of runners, including Sophie Follett and Natalia Webb, writing their names into the record books.

Follett narrowly walked away with the 14 years girls record for 800m, beating the old record by around a second.

"It's a really good feeling - I didn't think I would beat it," she said. "I won the 400m as well and came close to the record on that one."

Last year, Follet qualified for Darling Downs in both cross country and athletics.

Natalia Webb was one of the biggest stars of the day, winning all her events and breaking a near-30 year record.

The Little Athletics star ran the 200m sprints in just 27.12 seconds, .42 seconds faster than the previous record.

"It's good to see all my hard work has paid off," she said.

Webb also blitzed the 400m hurdles, finishing well ahead of her competitors.
