AVSL 2021/22 Round 9

A sensational first up run by new recruit, Ryan Tarrant, was the highlight of round 9. Running at his new home, Ryan ran an equal Under 20 100m club record with a sensational 10.53s.

Meanwhile, down at Geelong Jamison Towers broke her own U 14 long jump with a leap of 5.50m. She also broke the club 200m record with 25.51s but a wind of +2.4 won’t allow this time to be ratified.

Imogen Makin recorded a shot put of 11.55m to gain an U15 National Qualifier. This adds to her discus qualifier. The day was well worth the long drive to Casey!

We welcomed Heidi Duncan to the club for her first comp and saw the return of Sky Robertson after recovering from injury and illness.

ESS won the Premier division again by 8000 points from Box Hill who used their Power Play.

MOP, WOP, W14 won their age group, while M40 were second (just 38 points behind Box Hill). W20, M18 finished 3rd on the day.

CLUB HELPERS:

A big thanks to everyone who helped get the equipment out and the marquees up, assisted at the long jump and steeples and stayed back til after 7pm to pack everything away. Also thanks to those who volunteered at Geelong. Special mention to some of Gaff’s Gang – Mikeala, Vishnu and Brian who put in an hour at the jumps pit. Also Matt Hosie and Matt Millington who helped after they’d finished their events. Great effort!
