I’m not sure which branch of the Growden family Josh Growden belongs to, but his record is worth recording. But he is a pupil at Clare High School, South Australia.
|Josh Growden on his way to setting a new record in high jump.
The Clare High School sports carnival was held on Wednesday, March 19.
After being postponed due to the heat, the eventual day was perfect and weather conditions couldn’t have been better.
A staggering 14 records were broken on the day, with Dale Holliday breaking four of those, closely followed by Kirsty Faulkner on three.
Gleeson and Scott tied for first place in the War Cry and Wiensmith won their fourth sports day shield in a row.
Under 15 Male Winner – Josh Growden.

As I’ve said before, I don’t know if any how Hailee Growden is related, burt here’s a snippet of news anyway.
The Hagerstown Community College volleyball team underwent a changing of the guard Thursday at the HCC athletic complex.
Three Williamsport players signed Thursday – middle hitter Katie Koontz, outside hitter Hailee Growden and setter Lindsey Kneisley.
Growden, an All-Area Second Team selection last season, averaged 2.01 kills and 3.32 digs and served 50 aces for the Wildcats. She also was Williamsport’s fiery leader.
“I love playing the leadership role, trying to fire up my team,” Growden said. “I’m ready for any challenge, any position.”
“She’s going to be one of our emotional leaders,” Domenico said. “She’s a versatile player so we might try some different things with her.”

Romange Growden has objected to a Halloween party in Palmetto, Florida. Not sure if she’s related.
Romange Growden says she’s mortified the place where her husband and mother are buried — and the place she’ll eventually be — is the site for a Halloween party.
“I just don’t see why a cemetery would get involved in Halloween. Just the thought of it! What, do they want to raise the dead?” she asked.

I’m not sure if this is one of ours, but I found it on Athens Exchange:
Say It In Slang is a vocally sound record, excuse the corny pun. Gonzales delivers his signature dreamlike vocals, but one thing that sets this album apart from other M Coast records is that Emily Growden, wife of band member Derek Almstead, contributed her voice to lead a few of the songs. Her light, feathery voice is a perfect complement to Gonzales’ guitar work. It’s almost flute-like. The opening track, “Sailing Around the World” starts the album off with her voice, and is more than enough to catch your attention. Needless to say, Emily’s voice is a wonderful addition to M Coast’s laidback and lazy sound.
Anyway, I’m collecting information on all Growdens, hoping I’ll find connections between them some day.

Jackie Seaman recently joined the Growden family discussion forum, and has sent me a chart of the descendants of William Growden and Elizabeth Sandercock she had managed to trace, which shows that she is my fourth cousin once removed.
She has quite a few descendants that I don’t have, and I have some that she doesn’t have, so we’re going to have fun over the next few months comparing notes.
