Hello Members,

Despite the pause in the AVSL summer program last Saturday, the athletic spirit of our club soared high at the Victorian All Schools Track & Field Championships. A commendable count of 17 Old Scotch athletes raced for their respective schools, with a special mention to a few additional non members (Scotch athletes) who joined the challenge. The weekend saw numerous Personal Bests (PBs) shattered, medals earned, and invaluable experience gained at a championship level.

Highlight of the Weekend: The U16 1500m Final was a spectacle where three of our athletes not only finished in the Top 10 but also set new PBs. Our two 110m hurdlers also clocked impressive times, making us all very proud.

Medal Tally: Our club members bagged a total of 9 medals in week 1. What’s in store next week?:

Performance Roundup: A detailed roundup of the performances can be found here. Some of the notable performances include Max Searle qualifying for Nationals in U20 110H, and Lily Taylor’s gold in 100m amidst Y12 exams.
