U14 Boys 200m sprint
Andres ran a well controlled heat to qualify fastest for the final. The final was very exciting with Wol from Hornsby getting a great start and leading most of the race before Andres came back at him and got the win on the line. Nobody knew who had won until they called out the results after the race – even surprised Andres!
|1st||Andres Hampel||Northern Suburbs||24.73|
Senior Boys 4x100m relay
In the senior 4x100m relay, teams may run an athlete from each age group from U13, U14, U15 and U17. Teams may run a younger athlete in place of an older athlete, but not the other way around. Due to the lack of U17 athletes with competitive 100m times and only one U15 athlete, it was decided by the club to run two U14 athletes and no U17 athlete.
Despite no training; limited warmup before the race; and a relatively young team with the oldest athlete being 14 years old versus the 15 or 16 year old U17 athletes in other teams, the boys ran an excellent relay with great baton changes to get the silver medal.
Unfortunately, only the winning team from the relays gets to compete at the state championships.
Athletes: Zak (U13); Hugo (U14); Liam (U15); Andres (U14)
