Eleven track and field records were broken at the Caloundra Christian College junior athletics carnival.
The standout performances came from 12 year old Joel Berge, who broke the record for the 100m and 200m sprints as well as the long jump and high jump.
“He’s chuffed; he’s been doing lots of training and is quite committed to athletics. He’s done very well,” said Head of Primary School Brian Megson.
Joel was among good company, with several athletes in his age group also breaking records: Phebe Heness broke the girls’ 200m and long jump records; Bailey Guntzler broke the girls’ shot put and discus records; and Colin Swasbrook-Murray broke the boys’ shot put and discus records. It’s a positive development for the College.
“Over the years we’ve seen an improving standard around the school in athletics,” Mr Megson said.
The junior athletics day involved all the students aged from nine to 12 years, competing in events such as 100m, 200m, 800m, long jump, high jump, discus and shot put.
“Lots of parents attend. It’s always a day when parents get involved. They follow the students around the grounds.”
The day was won by Bilyara House.
