It was great to see our U11 boys at Discus cheering and supporting each other through the event, as well as our U11 girls showing great support to each other and having lots of fun in between their events.
Our older athletes were giving tips to the younger ones and it is great to see them being role models to our younger athletes. Some of our older athletes juggled two competitions on the weekend - participating in the Athletics Victoria State championships as well. Well done to all those athletes who participated and medalled there also.
