The 2021 Little Athletics Victoria Relay Championships were held at Casey Fields, Cranbourne over the weekend.  This year’s Championships were conducted under a new format due to restrictions with Under 9-12 athletes competing on the Saturday and the Under 13-16 teams on Sunday.  Only 4x100m races were held and run as timed finals.

Bacchus Marsh had 20 teams representing the Centre.  The Girls Under 15 finished top 8 in the State producing a well consistent four legs of relay racing – well done girls!  All teams showed great determination in their races and should be extremely proud of their performances.

Special thanks to all the coaches who have dedicated many hours of training leading up to the Championships.  Under 9’s Bethan White, Under 10’s Georgia Roberts, Under 11’s Chris Ha & Natalie Grero, Under 12’s Steve Lee, Under 13’s Chantelle Estlick, Under 14’s Rob Dutt & Chantelle Estlick, Under 15’s Jorge Ide and Under 16’s Karen Lloyd.

Thank you to the parents who completed their duty over the weekend.  A big thank you to everyone who was at Casey Fields to support the Marsh and to those who sent good luck messages to our kids – thank you!
