A Record-Breaking Performance!

In an exhilarating Round 5 of the AVSL, Old Scotch Athletic Club (OSAC) achieved a monumental score of over 11,000 points across both Aberfeldie and Frankston venues, a testament to our athletes’ dedication and skill. This remarkable performance keeps us on top of the leader board.

Highlights of the Round:
* A record participation from seven female athletes, with four ranking in our top 10 point scorers.
* Conor achieved our first 500-point event score of the season in the steeplechase, contributing over 1150 points across three events.
* Six athletes scored 400+ points in a single event, showcasing top-tier performances.Conor (800), Xavier (200), Gabby (800), Lily G (200), Hugo (800) and AJ (800).  This is top shelf.
* Impressive club debuts from Lily Gumley and Ed Aitken.
* A total of fifteen PBs recorded, a remarkable achievement for the team. 

Notable Performances:
* Challenges in the Men’s 200m Heat 1 with repeated misfires of the starting gun x7 attempts. Patience from Will B-J while this was worked through.
* Lily G’s PB in the 200m using blocks for the first time and last minute block tips from her brother.
* Exciting finishes in the 800m by AJ and Conor going stride for stride in the last 100m.
* Tom Russell’s best 800m run in two years.
* Luke Bodle’s new PB in the 1500m at Frankston.
* Five PBs in 200m (with no wind assistance) including an excellent run by Jayden Millie in preparation for his Aust Primary School Championship run in Launceston next weekend. Best wishes Jayden.

Team Gumley – Lachlan & Lily and Stubbs – Alex & Hugo scored over 2700 points, enough to beat 4 of the teams in our Division by themselves!

Nice work by Connor who shaved 14 secs off his PB 👏 and a national qualifier…

Thank you to everyone for their outstanding performances and contributions.

Many thanks to this week’s lap scorer Danny Sullivan who ensured every number was entered precisely for the steeplechase.  We do have to provide lap scorers and Club helpers on many occasions including Round 6 at Glenhuntly.  All offers of assistance greatly appreciated.

Let’s keep the momentum going into the next round!

Best Regards, Old Scotch Athletic Club
