It was another scorching day at St Leonards for the Northern High Schools Sports Association division one carnival on Friday.
Riverside rolled en route to its 19th consecutive aggregate win in the carnival, ode to a record-setting day from runner Jackson Wood.
Wood set a new record in the grade 9 200 metres run at 23.29 second, clearing Isaac Chugg's previous record of 23.69 by a reasonable margin.
"It felt pretty good, it was a nice run to start the day off with," Wood said.
"The 200-metre is a nice distance, good and bouncy ... what made it even better was the person that held the record was my coach's son."
Wood would also finish first in the grade 9 boys 100 metres and long jump. However, one of Wood's own records would be felled twice on Friday.
While Prospect's Rowan Allen would clear the Wood's boys grade 7 200 metres record of 25.40 seconds with 25.39, Lochlan Harris of Kings Meadows would etch past him with a record-setting time of 25.34.
"It feels great ... It's a good day for it mate," he said. Wood was humble after hearing his record had fallen.
"They're made to be broken," he said.
Fellow Kings Meadows student Abbie Butler would also have herself a day, setting the record for the girls grade 9-10 800m of 2.27.28 (formerly 2.30.70).
Elsewhere in sport:
She would also come first in the girls grade 9-10 1500 metres, 400 metres and as one of four in the 4x100 metre relay.
NHSSA executive officer Andrew McCarthy said Butler was dominant all day.
"She's a very good athlete," he said.
Scottsdale's Taia Lette would also set a new meet and schools record for the girls grade 8 high jump at 1.56 metres (formerly 1.55).
The Riverside foursome of Wood, Will Bottle, Lachlan Brewer and Rupert Rathbone would set a new record in the boys grade 9 4x100 metre relay. While Riverside's victory comes as a limited shock for most, McCarthy was impressed by Kings Meadows' slim victory in the Senior Shield.
"It was really good to see Kings Meadows win the Senior Shield, Riverside usually makes a clean sweep most years," he said
