Friday night saw 41 athletes take to the track and the field, one new record broken and 93 personal bests achieved.

As the year gets very busy with the last few weeks of school approaching our athletes are still pushing themselves to set new PBs. A special mention this week to all the young boys who are dominating their PB tally.

Results are for the athletes that set four or more PBs this week.
