Prior to the start of competition our athletes and families participated in a lap of Masons Lane for a gold coin donation in support of the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. The Centre raised $344 towards the appeal.
In perfect conditions for athletics we saw 7 Centre Records set as today’s meet. Nelson Banigo (Eagles) had an awesome day on the track setting 3 new records. Nelson ran 29.52 secs for the 200m, 1:09.70 mins for the 400m and 10.40 secs for the 60m Hurdles. Elliott Banigo (Eagles) set his first Centre record running 36.62 secs in the Under 7 200 metres.
