07 Dec Year 9 Mason Smith Athletics Star
Year 9 student Mason Smith has been trialing for the Inter-provincial Athletics Team to represent Counties Manukau.
Recently Mason won 5 x 1st (60 metres, 200 metres, Long Jump, High Jump and Shot Put) and placed 2nd in the Discus. He was selected for the Counties Manukau Relay Champs and his team (13 year boys) won the 4x 100 metres and 4x 200 metres and broke both Counties Records. He also took home the gold in the Field Relay winning the long jump for his team. He also recently raced at Mt Smart and did the 400 metres in just 59 seconds.
The coach at Pakuranga Athletic Club has indicated Mason could be a top hurdler and so he is currently learning that because he can already clear each hurdle with only 3 strides between!
Mason will find out on the 9th December if he has made the Inter-provincial team. All the best Mason we are sure you will make it!
