Burnie's Brendan Smart wins three events at the Central Coast Carnival on Saturday

Winning smiles: Brooke Jones, Jarred Gilroy and Brendan Smart after their successes at the Central Coast Carnival on Saturday. Picture: Supplied.

Brendan Smart’s winning start to the Tasmanian Athletic League season has continued in style after he scored a hat-trick of victories at Saturday’s Central Coast Carnival at Penguin.

The Burnie runner began his big day out with another win in the 70-metres open final, which comes on top of successes already over the distance at Launceston and Richmond in recent weeks.

Smart (8.5m) crossed the line in 7.65 seconds, finishing in front of Mt Hicks’ Tim Potter (9m), with Burnie’s Jack Colgrave (5m) in third.

He saluted again in the men’s feature race of the day, the 120m gift, using his front mark of 12.75m well to hold out Hobart’s Mark Nichols (12m) in a time of 12.39 seconds, with Colgrave (5.5m) third again.

Smart showed his versatility later in the day by also crossing the line first in the masters 300m handicap off 26m, beating home Potter (25m) and Nichols (19m).

There was also North-West success in the women’s gift over 120m, with Devonport’s Brooke Jones taking out her second gift race of the season in comfortable fashion.

Jones (7m) beat home Port Sorell’s Eve Bell (7m) by 0.27 seconds, with Ulverstone’s Abby Chapman (2.75m) in third.

In other events, Hobart’s Jarred Gilroy (22m) held off Ulverstone’s Lachlan Bonney (21m) and Colgrave (26m) to win the open 400m final, while Newstead’s Sam Clifford showed he could be one to watch over the mile races this season with a second successive triumph in the open 1600m handicap race.

The next event is the PCCCT Carnival at West Park on December 16.
