Four students from Bellata Public School travelled to Tamworth for the Regional Athletics Carnival on Friday, September 1.

Ruby Stewart competed in three individual events on the day.

She ran very well in her 200m sprint and walked away with fifth place in both the long jump and shot put.

Ruby then joined her peers, Angus McPherson, Max Gillogly and Chloe Gillogly (who stepped in for Thomas Roach) to run in the Smalls Schools Relay.

The team did well placing fourth in their heat and sixth overall in the final.

The day was great experience for all the students who will only get faster and stronger in the coming years.
