There were solid numbers for this round with 60 athletes competing across the three events: Men’s and Women’s 10km and the Junior 3km. The weather conditions were near ideal for the start of the men’s 10km however as the morning progressed the northerly wind picked up making the return 2km leg quite challenging. With the increased men’s and women’s numbers this week our team numbers improved with the women nearly fielding 5 teams and the open men 4 teams.
Highlights from the round are Liam Cashin’s win in the U20s 10km race with the fastest time for Western Athletics and Mia White’s win in the U14 3km race. For our teams the U20s scored their first win of the season, the U14 girls won again to make it 6 from 6, on their way to a clean sweep, and the second win for the U16 girls and now only 3 points behind current ladder leaders Yarra Ranges.
Thanks to our four AV helpers Colette Taylor, Luke Hodgart, Sam Mahoney and Dan Dunstone.
