Athletes excel at state level

LOCAL athletes competed in state competitions on the weekend.
Seven competitors from Wonthaggi Little Athletics competed in the State Multi Championship in Cranbourne.
Despite the heat, they performed extremely well and posted 21 personal bests.
All competitors took part in five events during the championship – hurdles, 100m, 800m, long jump, discus for boys, and shot put for girls.
Wonthaggi’s Hope Oats finished 18th overall, and Archie Terlich had the second longest discus throw for the U11s.
Athletes above the U9 age group from across the state were invited to participate in this event.
Local athletes also competed in the Athletics Victoria Country Track and Field Championships in Ballarat.
Tevuro Ihomana Montgomery won two gold medals for javelin and 80m hurdles, silver for 200m hurdles and a bronze for the 100m.
Nicola Slade won a gold medal for high jump, silver in pole vault, and came sixth in long jump.
U18s competitor Rachel Aitken won a silver medal for high jump.
The club is now looking forward to the Regional Track and Field event to be held in Berwick in three weeks.
The regular club meet will be on again this weekend.

Chill out: Wonthaggi athletes Archie Terlich, Lara Smyth, Hope Oats and Nathan Patch took a break out of the heat at the State Multi Championship on the weekend in Cranbourne.
