Despite the heavy threatening clouds there was no rain and conditions were ideal for racing. With the light rain during the week the surface was damp but firm and provided for a fast course. With most juniors racing in the All Schools it was just the Open and U20s who points scored this round. Our Open men’s teams continued the strong numbers with 21 athletes, fielding 4 teams. Our open women’s, despite a solid premier team, were very low on numbers insufficient to field a second Div 3 and Div 4 team.
This week saw the completion of shade sails installed at our Werribee track. The new structures will be a valuable addition for athletes and spectators at training and competition. A big thank you to Wyndham City Council for leading and completing the project.
