Relay Team leads Cherrybrook medal haul at State Little Athletics Championships.

 

The last event run over the two day State Little Athletics Championships held on 15-16 March 2008 at the Sydney Olympic Centre is the Senior Boys Relay. The Cherrybrook team of Ben Jaworski, Jonathon Palmer, Anthony Palmer and Marcus Venables stormed home to take the Gold medal in a fast 48.85s. It was a very exciting way to finish with lots of cheering from the Cherrybrook supporters as Ben Jaworski stormed to the lead after the final change.

 

Their performance capped off an excellent Championships  for The Cherrybrook Club with 16 medals being won and a total of 38 top 8 finishes. The club had a record  39 athletes qualify to compete at State after the Regional Championships held on 16-17th February.

 

All our athletes put in 100% in their events with heaps of P.B’s being broken over the weekend. Thanks once again to Nicky Jenneke and her right and left hand woman, Michelle for organising the club’s reserved place in the grandstand and for your general organisation of the Club’s participation at State. Thanks to all the parents who did duties and supported the athlete’s so enthusiastically. Thanks to all the athletes for your efforts over the 2 days and for supporting your other team mates in their events.  Wherever you came you are all champions. Go Cherrybrook!!!  

 

There were a number of outstanding individual performances. Leading the way was Amy Pejkovic who smashed the existing U15 Girls State and National High Jump Records with a leap of 1.80m.
