Kids receive medals
The Lower South West Giants Athletics Centre has announced its results for the 2019-20 season.
Athletes are awarded medals for the number of personal bests they achieved during the season.
Athletes who achieved more than 26 personal bests received a gold medal, between 13 and 25 personal bests a silver and below 12 personal bests a bronze medal.
Olivia Gillard, Billy Pearce, Holly Gillard, Tayte Oliver, Tatiana Thomas and Toby Gillard received gold medals.
Jazzmin Pearce, Adyson Lowe, Mackayla Lowe, Kasinda Thomas, Erica Pearce, Emily Dumpert, Ryan Oliver, Olivia Perry, Tegan Ellis and Claire Ellis received silver medals.
Sebastian Van Der Putten, Madeline Dumpert, Matthew Lowe, Ryan Roberts and Will Roberts received bronze medals.
The Rob Grant Memorial Trophy is awarded to the club’s junior, intermediate and senior champions.
The champion in each age group is decided by a scoring system that awards points to each competitor depending on how close they are to the centre’s record for a particular event.
It was won by Ryan Oliver in the junior category, Tayte Oliver in the intermediate category and Tegan Ellis in the senior category. Ellis also received a jacket embroidered by Manjimup Monograms for graduating from the Little Athletics Program, having first started with the club in the 2010/2011 season.
Centre president Joh Perry said that despite the centre having the lowest number of competitors in its 11-year history, it had received fantastic support from their parents.
The centre’s new season is due to start in October.
