Saturday was the opening round of track ‘n’ field for the 2017-‘18 summer for both Little Athletics and senior AV Shield competition.
Fantastic to see the turnout of eager athletes at Morrison Reserve, Mount Evelyn, for the opening round of Little Athletics.
Great to see so many familiar faces of our returning athletes and the amazing group of new athletes.
The club hopes you all enjoyed the fun, sunshine, made friends and are looking forward to doing it all again next weekend.
The senior team were spread between two venues for the opening round of the revamped AV Shield competition.
Athletes can now compete at any venue to score points for the club.
The club had great numbers at both Nunawading and Doncaster tracks with numerous personal bests recorded. Results will be on the website and Facebook pages when they become available.
Next weekend the seniors can compete at Frankston or Werribee while the Little Athletics Athletes enjoy the comfort of competing on our home track at Mount Evelyn.
Please remember that Little Athletics starts at 9am sharp with warms up 8.45am.
Please get there early to help with set-up.
