Due to the Region Relays being held on Saturday, this week’s little aths meet was held on Friday evening.

A modified program was conducted with each athlete competing in 4 events.  Conditions were perfect for athletics and our kids showed us with over 350 PB’s recorded.  Amazing numbers, considering limited events were held.   A standout performance from Nelson Banigo (Eagles) setting 2 new Centre records.  Nelson broke the Under 8 200 metres, which had previously stood for 27 years, running a blistering time of 33.05 secs. Nelson also bettered his 100 metres, setting a new record of 15.31 secs.  Jarvis Miles (Blues) showed his recent hard training is paying off, breaking his own Under 13 Discus record, throwing 33.33 metres.  

The Centre wishes Jarvis Miles & William Lalor all the best for this weekend as they represent School Sports Victoria at the Sports Australia Track & Field Championships in Sydney.  Jarvis will be competing in the 12 year old Discus, while William will be competing in the 11 year old High Jump and Discus.  Best of luck boys!

This Saturday is our annual Centre Multi Event program commencing at 8.30am.  Athletes will compete in five events (hurdles, sprint, distance, discus & long jump) gaining points in each event.  ALL five events must be competed in to have completed the Multi Event.  If one event is not competed in, that athlete will be deemed ineligible to win any award. 

Trophies are awarded to the winners of each age group with medals for second and third.  Presentations will be made at the following week’s competition.
