Alva's Sports Club successfully defended its overall championship as the 28th State junior and senior athletics meet concluded at Udupi on Sunday.

The Moodabidri-based establishment finished team champion in seven of the 10 categories, with MEG, Uttara Kannada and Dakshina Kannada sharing the other three.

A further four records fell on the day, taking the meet tally to 12. The men's hammer throw record of 56.80 had stood in Harish Shetty's name for 20 years, but MEG's Surendra Kumar rewrote it with an effort of 58.05.

Local athlete Keerthi, meanwhile, rubbed out her own mark of 2.30 in the under-20 girls' pole vault, improving on it by 0.05m.

J.S. Priyanka reset the under-16 girls' discus throw record with a throw of 35m. The Dakshina Kannada athlete erased M. Sneha's figure of 33.83 from 2003.
