Round 3 of Yarra Ranges Athletics was held on Saturday morning at Morrison Reserve, Mount Evelyn.
Light drizzle did not deter the little athletes as they ran, jumped and threw with plenty of smiles and hopes of PBs.
Results are available on the LAVIC website or at www.yarrarangesathletics.org.au.
The seniors competed in Round 3 of the AV Shield held at Nunawading and Meadow Glen tracks.
Most of the athletes were at Nunawading creating a fantastic club atmosphere.
Many thanks to Malcolm, James, Kieran, Lucas, Jamie and the many others who shared club-helper duties. Without your help, the club scores zero points.
It was also great to welcome some new faces to the team, who all performed exceptionally; well done Ashlinn, Sarah, Oliver and Seamus.
Round 4 of little athletics next Saturday has an 8am start for Under 11s-Under 15s javelin; please get there early to help set up and be ready to start on time.
All other grades are the normal 8.45am warm-up with competition starting at 9am.
Seniors have AV Shield at Knox or Werribee; don’t forget to enter by noon Wednesday.
