Young runner on track for successo Athletics



TWEED athlete Angus McNally has cemented his reputation as a track star in the making after a sizzling performance at the NSW All Schools Championships at Homebush last weekend.

McNally, 14, up- staged the cream of the state's junior middledistance runners to claim the 800m crown, powering home in 2mins 03secs.

The St Josephs College student added to his medal haul on day two of the titles, claiming silver in the 400m in a personal best 52.18sec, an effort that drew praise from coach Brian Chapman.

"Junior middle-distance runners with 52second speed are thin on the ground anywhere, so he's got the makings (of a champion)," Chapman said.

McNally's medal double has ensured him a start in both the 400m and 800m events at the Australian AllSchool Championships.

Banora Point flyer Jacob Henshall and Tweed Heads' Justin McManus will launch their qualifying campaigns at the Queensland championships in Brisbane this weekend.
