Well done and thank you to Malcolm and Sophie for coaching, Michael, Trish, Katie and the many others for support on the day.
The seniors competed at various venues on Sunday with many going to either Frankston or Aberfeldie tracks. Results are not yet available.
The littlies enjoyed a fun night of Twilight athletics on Friday night.
After a fantastic warm-up led by Brayden, Noah and Tayleb a club versus club shuttle relay was held.
Athletes then competed at a range of events with their fellow clubmates, which was thoroughly enjoyed by athletes and parents – until the storm came.
The next round of Little Athletic athletics is the Multi Event round.
Be there early for set-up and extra events. Bring a friend if you want!
The seniors travel to Ringwood (or Doncaster) on Saturday afternoon for Round 7 of AV Shield.
Four club athletes will be representing Victoria at the Australian School Track and Field Championships in Adelaide next weekend.
Georgia Laven (800 & 1500), Tayleb Willis (200m Hurdles), Maddie Laven (800) and Indi Linde (1500m).
Good luck all of you!
