The 2018/19 track and field season commenced on Saturday morning at Masons Lane Reserve and the weather was perfect for Little Athletics. It was extremely pleasing to see so many new faces, as well as our past members returning for another season. We had a large number of Come and Try athletes and we hope they all enjoyed their first athletics competition.
Congratulations to Nelson Banigo (Eagles) who broke our first record for the season. Nelson ran 13.84 seconds for the Boys Under 10 100 metres and looks set to have another superb season.
Results for all registered athletes can be found HERE.
