Otago Southland Secondary School Competition

A large contingent of over 60 athletes travelled to Dunedin for this event recently, some having to get up very early in the morning! It was a perfect day which enabled JHC athletes to gain a large number of placings.  Over half of the team qualified for the South Island Championships which is an exceptional achievement.

Special mention must be made of Emma Ryan who smashed the existing Otago Southland record to win the Senior Girls Shot and Michelle Lindsay who broke the Otago Southland Pole Vault record to win the Open Girl Title.

Other Titleholders were:

Mac Stodart, U14 Boys’ – Discus

Luke Holland, U15 Boys’ – Long Jump
