LOCHIE Armstrong's national junior male title is the eighth title to be won by Fraser Coast athletes.

Armstrong led from start to finish at the School Sport Australia 19 and Under Triathlon Championships to win the title on home soil.

His victory is the fifth consecutive year in which a Hervey Bay athlete has won.

He follows in the footsteps of two-time champion Christian Wilson (2010, 2012), the only female winner Brooke Willis (2013) and the record-holding four-time champion Matt Hauser.
