BROTHER and sister pair of Katie and Jarrod Rowe both had mixed fortunes in the junior division of the McCosker Sprint Series round one over the weekend.

For Katie, things could have turned out better than what she had aimed for.

The 14-year-old finished eighth in the under 85cc and up to 140cc 12-16 year age bracket.

"The track was good, but I didn't ride as well as I would have liked," Katie said.

Her next assignment is the first round of the CQ series in early April and the next round of the sprints at the Benaraby track.

Little brother Jarrod upstaged his older sister in the 65cc 10-12 year class, but it's the advice that Katie gave him that worked a treat.

"My sister gave me tips like doing the stance and other things," Jarrod, 10, said.

In other junior races; Kadin Ballard won the 85cc division ahead of Jaxon Hansen and Zac Perry.

The 65cc 7-10 year category belonged to Matthew Sinclair ahead of Deakin Goldstone.

Jarrod Rowe had it all to himself and was announced the winner in the 65cc 10-12 year division while Aidan Noonan and Peter Bewsey were one and two in the 85cc to 150cc 9-12 year class.

In the popular 200cc and up to 250cc for the 13-16 year category; Bradan Shelton, Ryan Thompson and Morgan Baker got the podium finish they were aiming for.
