Jarvis Miles (Blues) started his season off with a bang in his first event, setting a new Under 13 Discus record with a record distance of 31.31 metres. This record had previously stood for 10 years. Keely Rich (Dolphins) threw 21.08 meters in the Under 15 Girls Javelin to set her first Centre Record.
