Winkler and Bannister flex muscle



STEPHANIE Winkler and Martin Bannister continued their great form to win 13 years individual events at Kepnock State High School's annual biathlon.

The event consisted of a 400m swim and a 3km run and Winkler smashed the girls' age record by over two minutes, while Bannister bettered the boys' mark by one minute.

There were also some great performances from other athletes, including Belinda Cooper, who bettered last year's junior girls' times by one minute, and Luke McKendry and Megan Connellan, won took out the senior boys and girls' categories respectively.

Bannister and two other Kepnock athletes also performed exceptionally well in the Queensland Little Athletics Championships in Townsville - Taryn Gollshewsky and Hayden Peardon each achieving personal bests and medals.

Meanwhile, Kepnock's junior girls' touch team continued to excel in Bundaberg and District fixtures.

Both North and Kepnock were congratulated on their commitment to play in the wet conditions.

Kepnock's senior boys and girls teams travelled to Isis where they also did well.
