The Cressy District High School will perform in the Northern High School Sports Association’s First Division for the first time in 2022 after winning the Division Two Carnival on Tuesday. Competition between the top three schools was tight throughout the day at the St Leonards Athletics Center and with two stints to go, just four points separated Cressy and Scottsdale. The day’s two records, Taia Lette and Wade Lamont, both of Scottsdale High, produced high-quality performances – breaking not only the Division Two record, but NHSSA benchmarks in all three divisions. Lamont also easily improved the entry standard for the 2022 National Under-18 Championships and Lette was only 1cm away from reaching the same in her age group. Lamont’s 60.44m 700 gram grade 10 javelin throw broke the previous division record of 54.10m. Lamont also won the 100m, 400m and shot put. Meanwhile, Lette’s jump of 1.62m in the grade 9 high jump improved the three division record by 15cm and the all division record by 1cm. Lette also won the Grade 9 100, 200m, triple jump and shot put and helped Scottsdale win the 4x100m relay. Brian Roe of Athletics Tasmania praised the Scottsdale pair. “The two should make sure that the Northern team for the resumption of the state high school carnival next week will not all come from Division One schools,” he said. “And they could be joined by others given the pleasantly high level of performance in today’s competition – which, after a cool start, was contested in good conditions for athletics.” Mia Jarman de Cressy had an impressive course winning the 100m, 200m, 400m, long jump and triple jump in category 10. Amber Sherriff of Deloraine won the 100m, 200m and 400m in grade. 8. The Division 1 Carnival will take place on Wednesday and Division Three on Thursday. Meanwhile, little athletics returns to Launceston this weekend with the second meeting of the State Series. More than 340 athletes aged 5 to 14 representing 17 centers across Tasmania will compete at the St Leonards Athletics Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
