The 69 athletes brought home 29 medals, including 10 golds, to easily eclipse last year’s haul of 19.

Adding to the success, under-10s runner Zac Cowan broke the Australian record for the 60m hurdles.

The state meet followed the previous weekend’s national championships in Perth.

Joondalup had 14 entries on the national stage for the return of two bronze medals.

The track-and-field season now gives way to cross-country running, which begins in April.
