Last week our athletes achieved a whopping 232 PB’s and four Centre Records broken by Kaito Peake 700m (2:31.11s) , Lachlan Buyck in the 1500m (4.52:17s), Hamish Mazzetti 100m (19.71s) and Hamish for the 400m (1:54.05). Absolutely brilliant effort by these athletes. We also had Ange Ritchie our motivational speaker conduct two sessions. For those that attended I hope you got a lot of take aways!
Whats coming up!
EMR Relays – Saturday 3rd Dec at Ringwood – This Saturday, 3rd December there is no athletics competition because Ringwood is hosting EMR relays. Ringwood has not hosted a region event for many years and we are looking forward to a great day and it’s a big deal for our centre! So even if your athlete is not running, feel free to come down and cheer on Team Ringwood. The weather is looking warm so please remember to drink lots of water and get the sunscreen out as well. Parents of athletes will be expected to do a duty and I know a number of you are signed up, so thank you in advance. Al the best to our athletes. GO TEAM RINGWOOD.
