Eight records fell among some outstanding individual performances at the Wairarapa secondary school athletics meet at the Colin Pugh Sports Bowl last Tuesday.

Kuranui’s Jarrod Yee set records in winning the intermediate boys’ triple jump and long jump. His triple jump of 12.47m bettered the previous record by 7cm, while his long jump of 5.85m was 4cm better than the previous mark.

Mia Bartlett from Wairarapa College also set two records, 33.59m in the intermediate girls’ hammer, bettering the previous mark of 33.23m, and in the javelin, with a throw of 31.78m, extending
the record by 1.28m.

Pippa Raleigh from St Matthew’s set a new distance of 10.37m in winning the senior girls’ triple jump, beating the old mark by 16cm.

Kuranui’s Jack Lewington won the para shot put in a record 7.63m, and Waicol’s Josh Taylor broke his own para long jump record by 9cm with 4.46m.

Jack Hunter from Rathkeale smashed the intermediate boys’ 800m record by almost four seconds, with a time of two minutes, 0.4 seconds. He completed the middle-distance double with victory in the intermediate boys’ 1500m.

Waicol’s Matthew Rodger continued his good form winning the senior boys’ 100m and 200m sprint double, and Sovaia Sabutu from Waicol highlighted her massive potential with victory in the intermediate girls’ 200m and 400m.

Another outstanding sprint performance came from Chanel’s Neve Meade, who won the intermediate girls’ 100m in 13.15 seconds, the fastest time of all three girls’ races over the distance.
