A great week of club records, PBs and team results!
Aiden Robert’s U20 1500m club record of 3:48.16 at Milers on Thursday night was the first of a swag of club records and PBs for the week.
Kevin Healy once again smashed his U17 and U18 Hammer (5Kg) records with 58.88m and the U17 shot put with a massive14.27m at Nunawadding. Kevin was the state’s top points scorer with a total of 1589.
Thirteen year old Khushnoor Rangi established a club U14 and U16 pole vault record with a jump of 2.35m. Her sister Sukhnoor also excelled with 2.20m jump. Both girls qualified for Nationals with these performances.
Sukhnoor also qualified for Nationals with her 32.18m javelin throw! Great work girls!
A pole vault PB to Jade Guglielmino with 4.30m. Jade hopes to go even higher at the next meet. Big brother Marcus ran a 200m PB at Geelong last week with 21.88.
Noah Hijazi ran a 5 second PB in the 400m with 55.78s.
A big thanks to all the members, parents and friends of the club who helped with setting up, packing up and acting as club helpers. We will be launching an online system in the near future where you will be able to plan when you can give an hour or two to the club….watch this space.
