After putting in some solid performances at the Western Ranges Zone Championships in Kurrajong in November, Canowindra Little Athletics Centre’s under 9 girl age champions, Lucy Atkinson and Sophie Phelan, recently travelled to Dubbo for the Region 3 Athletics Championships.

Both girls performed well and managed to improve on all of their results.

Sophie Phelan jumped 95cm in High Jump (five centimeters improvement), ran 13.68s in 60m Hurdles (0.15s improvement) and threw 5.14m in Shot Put (40cm improvement) whilst Lucy Atkinson ran 35.03s in 200m sprint with a massive 2.39secs improvement.

Lucy’s effort in the 200m sprint earnt her a spot in the final in which she placed fourth and Sophie’s performance in the Shot Put earnt her a spot in the final in which she placed sixth.

Congratulations to both girls from everyone at Canowindra Little Athletics Centre.
