My Cart

Dear Athletes and Supporters,

In a Round 10 that sizzled 🥵 with competition, Old Scotch Athletic Club came out in full force, posting one of our highest club point scores in recent memory. Despite our rivals playing their Powerplay, our collective effort more than doubled their score, positioning us to clinch the Division 5 premiership with two rounds to go.

Our athlete roster was as diverse as it was impressive, featuring our largest turnout of female athletes this season, the debut of two fresh faces in Phoebe Grant and Mark Ballantyne, and a remarkable age span across competitors that proved yet again – in athletics, passion defies age.
 

Great to see the senior members of the club out and about competing and supporting the athletes out at Glenhuntly – Ian Handersyde, Gregor Evans and Doug Campbell.

Persistence Pays Off

Our scoreboard was ablaze with high scorers: Kudos to Gabby, Elden, Conor, Rory, Aj, our 4×100 Relay team, Tom Lindo, Hugo, Lachie G, Henry C, and Andy Jamieson for surpassing the 400-point mark in their events. Your dedication and talent shine through.

Despite delays, our sprinters remained undaunted with Elden and Henry and Lily G sprinting to new personal bests. Elden’s back-to-back 100m PBs are nothing short of remarkable. The U18 4×100 E Team sprinted to a significant point haul, while Doug and Hando’s friendly discus rivalry saw Hando earn this week’s bragging rights. Lachie Stewart continued to lower his 1500m times, and our female long jump duo leapt past the 4-meter mark, showcasing the growing depth in our field events.

Tom Lindeman’s Altitude Advantage

Tom Lindeman returned from his high-altitude reprieve to smash his 800m personal best, teasing the National Qualifier and earning his place in the exclusive 500 Point Club. Tom, you’re on the brink of greatness!

Acknowledgements

Our heartfelt thanks to all supporters and lap scorers who helped at Doncaster and Murrumbeena. Your efforts are crucial in enabling our athletes to earn points, especially in events over 1500m and the club to earn bonus points.

Thanks to the crew out at Duncan Mackinnon who survived the furnace known as the sun as temperatures rose into the mid 30’s – Gregor Evans, Margie Gumley, Ian Handersyde, Lachlan Stewart, JT, Andrew Aitken and Arjun Rajan 👏
