Moree Little Athletics Club enjoy successful weekend at wet and wild Little Athletics Regionals in Tamworth

Moree's young athletes braved some rough weather in Tamworth over the weekend for the Little Athletics Regionals.

Moree Little Athletics Club had 15 athletes travel over for the carnival in the middle of some tough weather conditions.

"It was horrendous," Moree Little Athletics Club president Kelly James said.

"There was rain, there was wind, there was mud, there was slop.

"Some of the kids were competing while there was absolute pouring rain and the wind conditions weren't exactly great. A few clubs lost their tents over the fence."

Despite having to compete in awful conditions, the club enjoyed a successful day.

"It was pretty good. We had lots of kids get their PBs and lots of kids get places that will move on to state," James said.

Four athletes, including Chaz and Mana Noble, Tamzin Taunton and Jesse James have all advanced through to the state carnival which will be held in Sydney on March 14 to 15.

"Mana Noble is going for shot put, discus and high jump. Chaz Noble is going for shot put and discus," James said.

"Jesse is going for the multi class event, shot put, discus, 800m, 100m and 200m. And Tamzin is doing the 300m hurdles."

James said there were a lot of athletes who finished fourth and fifth in their events that also have a chance to make it to the next level.

"It depends on the result of the other zones. We may have a few others heading through to state as well," she said.

"They take top two for each region and then the next best six across the three regions."

Moree Little Athletics Club will continue training on Wednesday afternoons for the next few weeks, with March 1 to be its last meet, which will be run in conjunction with Moree Plains Shire Council for Youth Week, with cross country training to begin after that.
