A bunch of hot Hunts AC prospects have caused the club’s record books to be rewritten.
Five young talents set 10 bests between them when competing in the Minithon Open Meet at Lee Valley, in London.
Nine-year-old Nigel Coleman was responsible for four of them as he starred over sprint distances.
Two of his records were set in the same 200m run as his time of 31.3 seconds was good enough to set new marks in both the Under 11 Boys and Under 13 Boys brackets.
Coleman also posted a new 60m record (9.05 seconds) and reduced the 60m hurdles best (10.54 seconds) in the younger of the age groups.

Macey Taylor claimed two club records of her own in the Under 13 Girls section.
She posted 11.06 for the 60m hurdles before completing the 600m in 2:09.4 to snatch the record from Willow Bedding, who had only set it herself moments earlier with an effort of 2:12.2.

Moira Howard was another athlete to produce a pair of record-breaking performances.
Her bests came in the Under 11 Girls long jump with a leap of 3.57m to shave six centimetres off the previous indoor mark.
And Howard also impressed over the barriers with an 11.77 time for the 60m hurdles.
Molly Webster was also in on the act in the same age group by clocking 2:40.0 for the 600m.
