Hi everyone, Week 14 of the 23-24 season and what another great week of athletics. A little low on numbers as families are still away, but we had 124 athletes compete, achieve 133 season PBs and there were 4 Centre records, well done all. The Centre records were U17Boys with Eden Smith throwing 34.99 in Javelin and Lachlan Buyck taking out the 200m (26.15), 110m hurdles (18.96) and in Triple Jump (10.18m), well done all. Our next competition is Wednesday 24th night twilight event and we are running Program C. It will be a busy program so we will need lots of help to keep it to schedule!!

Tuesday training is on and Deb is back. Just a note to parents, please do not actively coach your athlete during training times, we have coaches that are specifically trained to perform coaching. You will be asked to leave the track and field and let the coaches coach. Sunday training will resume in February.
