Ararat little athletes perform on big stage

The Ararat Little Athletics Club was well represented at the 2017 Stawell Easter Gift with four athletes competing across the three days.

The group enjoyed this year’s little athletics handicap events with fantastic efforts and exciting results for all involved.

Isobel and William Leggett both competed for their first time on Sunday and enjoyed their experience out on the professional track with the twins both finishing the 100-metre race in eighth.

Harrison Grant and Keelan Perry returned to the Gift and ran well again, improving their efforts from previous years.

Grant led well in his 800m, giving it his all, but could not hang on placing second in his heat on Saturday.

Perry ran a good time in his 100m heat Sunday taking line honours and qualifying in the first semi-final on the Monday.

He finished on a high, running a quicker time and came over the line in a tight finish in seventh place.
