14yo Boys 100m hurdles 84cm
With only two athletes in the race, Andres ran a very conservative race to win by nearly 5 seconds and easily progress to to the Sydney North Championships.
14yo Boys 100m sprint
Andres easily won by over half a second.
14yo Boys 200m sprint
Andres cruised to an easy win, over a second clear of the next runner.
14yo Boys 4x100m relay
Andres once again took on the responsibility of coaching his relay team, selected by his school from the best performances at their school athletics carnival in March, with one late substitution of athletes due to an event clash.
Their hard work paid off and they were dominant in the relay, with Andres receiving the baton already in first place at which point he easily pulled away from the field to win by nearly 2 seconds over the next team.
14yo Boys Long Jump
Andres competed in the long jump as a fun event. Even without any coaching and recording fouls for his first two jumps, he was able to jump 5.32m on his final jump to win the event.
