More records at athletics

Five records fell at the 2018 Athletics Championships at Mt Smart Stadium, with Hannah Houghton (pictured above) breaking two of them – the Senior Girls 1500m and 3000m.
She ran 5:07.33 for the 1500m, and 10:37.26 in the 3000m.
The other record-breakers were Max Brooke Cowden – 100m Senior Boys – 10.96s, Malia Seko – Junior Girls Long Jump – 5.20m, Luke Clements – Junior Boys 3000m – 9:55.72.
Max’s 100m record is significant in the history of the school as he is the first boy at MAGS to break the 11-second barrier. The time makes Max the fastest U20 student in the country over 100m so far this year.
