Prior to the commencement of weekly competition, the Centre conducted a lap of the athletics track.  All members and families walked a ‘Lap for Kids’ for a gold coin donation which will be donated to the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

Unfortunately, we were unable to complete the scheduled program and were forced to cease competition due to the heavy rain.  We did however, complete over half the events, therefore the remaining events will now be ‘catch up’ events. Most of the field ‘catch up’ events will be added to this Friday’s twilight meet.

Thursday night training this week will focus on Discus and Shot Put.  Training commences at 4pm.

This Friday at 5pm a modified program will be held due to the Region Track & Field Carnival being held on Saturday and Sunday at Werribee.  Bacchus Marsh will be represented by 35 athletes at the Carnival.

Representative athletes are:  Nelson Banigo, Ethan Braszell, Lincoln Braszell, Jesse Bullard, Elise Cook, Felix Cukavac, Jonas Cukavac, Oliver Cukavac, Violet Dillon, Daphne Dillon, Kayla Downes, Deegan Doyle, Tyrah Doyle, Evie Ducas, Mackenzie Estlick, Lachlan Goodman, Xavier Goodman, Tanae Grero, Shameka Grero, Murphy Harrington, Luatangi Haunga, Matai Haunga, Tamara Henry, Danielle Ide, Nicholas ide, Ryan Lister, Alex Lloyd, Hayden Lloyd, Patrick Lovett, Solomon Miesen, Temi Olaitan, Matilda Schembri, Eliza Schembri, Bridie Shanahan, Emma Stewart.
