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!
