Records dating back almost a decade tumbled at the Riverside High School athletics carnival.

Grade 10 Jarrod Hill’s 100-metre time of 11:53 broke the record of 11:76 from 2008 and the Riverside Olympic Soccer Club goalkeeper doubled up by setting a new benchmark of 11:69 in the 80m hurdles, nearly a second quicker than the existing record of 12:58 set in 2014.

Madison Brazendale became the first Grade 8 girl at the school to break the 14-second mark in the 80m hurdles, clocking 13:94 to beat the record of 14:36 set in 2015.

And the Grade 8 girls Monash team set a record of 58:61 in the 4x100m relay, eclipsing the nine-year-old time of 59:34.

Teacher Rohan Pooley said the carnival will conclude on Thursday.

“We still have the high jump and Grade 9 and 10 finals and relays,” he said.

“The carnival is being held across the whole Windsor Park complex and the council have provided us with fantastic support.

“It’s been a superb day and the participation has been outstanding.”
