Track and Field

The New Zealand Track and Field Championships were held over the week end of 3/4 March, with Year 10 student Karmen-Elizabeth Maritz competing in three events in the U18/U20 category.

She finished top three in each of these events with throws close to her current Personal Best. She won a Bronze in WU18 Javelin, Bronze in WU18 Shotput and Silver in WU18 Discus with a new Auckland Resident Record breaking distance of 44.99m for 13Y Girls.

This was an improvement on her own record throw of 44.11m set the previous weekend at the Auckland Junior Athletics Championship.
