Bacchus Marsh had 24 teams represent the Centre at the Western Metro Region Relay Championships held at the Melton Athletics Track on Saturday.  

The Relay Squad put in many hours of training leading up to the Championships and thanks must go to all coaches who volunteered their time to ensure our athletes were well prepared for the day.

Well done to all athletes who competed today.  It was great to see our kids enjoying the competition and many learning from their experience of competing at this level.  Well done we are proud of all your achievements today.

The Under 11 team excelled, claiming 3 Regional medals.  The Mixed 4 x 200m and 4 x 100m teams both won Gold medals and the Under 11 4 x 100m girls team placed third to claim Bronze.  The Under 14 girls held on for Bronze, after a close finish in their 4 x 100m event.  The Under 11 mixed teams have now qualified for the State Championships to be held at Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park on December 17.   State progressions should be available later in the week.

Many thanks to all parents who carried out their duties on the day.  Special thanks to Trena Lidgett who took on the role of Box 3 Manager for the entire day.  Thank you to those who helped set up this morning and stayed behind to pack up.  A big thank you to all members who came and supported our athletes, your encouragement was much appreciated.
