Kempsey Little Athletics had 48 competitors compete at the Zone event at Gloucester and the club is expecting a number of kids to qualify for the Regionals in Tamworth in March 3 and 4 next year.

The Kempsey Under 7s were too strong for the competition and came away with a swag of medals.

Chayse Trappel , Ashton Swain and Kourtney Morn all picking up medals with Chayse getting a medal in each of his four events.

Safiyah, Satrey and Serenity Clancy were at their best earning first place in their events.

The junior boy and girl relays were the highlight of the carnival for Kempsey Little Athletics as they were able to secure second place in both and qualify for Tamworth.

“The junior girls relay was fantastic with Chelsea Stringer running the first leg then a great run by Kristen Morn followed up by Isabel Jordon,” Kempsey Little Athletics secretary Andrew Trappel said.

“The girls were in third place on the last change over with only the top two teams going through.”

However, Ruby Trappel managed to produce the run of her lifetime as she pushed her team into second place on the final leg for qualification.

Kempsey Little Athletics is super proud of all our athletes and would like to thank the parents for taking there kids to Gloucester to compete.

Macleay’s Carson Hudson, who represents Stuarts Point Athletics Club, put on a dominant display to achieve personal bests in the 100m, 200m, 400m and long jump.

He secured first place in the above events while he finished in second place in the javelin. 

Carson is currently preparing for the Pacific School Games held in Adelaide in early December.
