Alva’s Sports Club predictably retained the overall championship as the State Senior and Junior athletics meet concluded at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium here on Sunday.

The Moodabidri-based team dominated proceedings on a wet final day, four of its athletes setting new meet records.

Abhijeet Singh smashed his own mark in the boys’ under-18 decathlon, finishing with 6255 points. The 17-year-old, originally from Varanasi, had set the existing record of 4838 last year.

Pavithra improved on the girls’ under-20 pole vault record by a centimetre, while H.S. Arpitha clipped 37 seconds off the prevailing mark in the girls’ under-18 5000m walk event.

Rounding off Alva’s record-breaking efforts was H. Srimanth, who cleared 3.7m in the boys’ under-18 pole vault event.
