The Bacchus Marsh Centre was represented by 36 teams at the Western Metro Region Relay Championships held at John Landy Field, Geelong today.

61 athletes made up the 2019 BMLAC Relay Squad. After weeks of training, all athletes were well prepared, thanks to the commitment and dedication of our volunteer coaches; Chantelle Estlick, Tony Attard, Victor Banigo, Natalie Grero, Chris Mai, Kate Conroy, Bethan White, Sam Stewart, Jorge Ide, Karen Lloyd and Sam Goodman.

Many athletes competed in their first relay competition, with a number also returning year after year for this annual event. The Centre is very proud of all athletes and hope you all enjoyed your experience at this level of competition.

The 4 x 200m events this year were contested over timed finals. The Under 13 Mixed team claimed our first medal for the day winning a Bronze medallion. The Under 10 Mixed A team finished 1st in their heat and 2nd overall, securing a Silver medal.

In the 4 x 100m events the Under 9 Boys ran a superb race, finishing strongly to take Bronze while the Under 9 Mixed team were consistent across all 4 legs to claim the Silver medal. The Under 10 Mixed team were simply superb in their final, after finishing 2nd in their heat, each runner improved in the final winning Gold and automatically qualifying for State. The Under 14 Mixed team ran a well-executed race, sneaking home for a Bronze medal. The Mixed Under 15 team produced a dominant Gold winning performance and an automatic spot at next month’s State Championships.

All teams will now anxiously await progressions for the State Championships, which should be available later in the week.

Thank you to all parents who filled their duty requirements today and special thanks to Cathy Sadhai who carried out the role of Chief Judge for majority of the day.

A big thank you to everyone who came and supported our athletes, your encouragement was much appreciated.
