TREVERTON athletes produced their best performances yet at this month’s KZN School, Youth and Junior Championships at the Kings Park athletics track.

They won a total of 10 medals which included four gold, one silver and five bronze. The gold medals were won by Eugh Nyakabau in the boys’ U15 triple jump, together with a silver in the long jump, Kylee McLoughlin in the girls’ U17 triple, Kelly-Jane Price in the girls’ U19 shot put and Shane Coetzee in the boys’ U19 discus. McLoughlin and Coetzee, for the second time, have both qualified for the SA Junior Championships.

One of the bronze medallists was Emily Marshall in the girls’ U19, 200 and 400-metre sprints. She ran against former school champion Justine Palframan who, after matriculating at Eshowe High School, has been training with the sprinters in Jamaica, including Usain Bolt.

Other bronze medallists were Hayley Pretorius in girls’ U17 high jump, and Oscar Haynes in boys’ U15 shot put and Tanaka Chivaviro in girls’ U15 discus.
