AV Shield: Round 4 Results

A dominant display from Charlotte Wilson in the 3000m steeplechase headed a big list of impressive individual performances from Essendon athletes across round four of the Athletics Victoria Shield season.

Wilson clocked 10:22.8sec for the open women’s event at Werribee to set the fastest time across all Shield competition for the season, her point score of 540 the highest of any Essendon athlete across the round.

Essendon athletes also shone in the pit; Benzan Oztorun (7.14m) and Catherine Mendes (5.76m) were standouts in their respective under 20 and under 18 long jump events at Werribee, while Ayo Ore (14.39m) and Tierra Exum (12.50m) excelled in their triple jump events at Geelong.

Louise Mendes and Maria Strong were the pick of the throwers, Mendes sending the hammer 52.93m in her under 20 event at Werribee and Strong recording 5.11m for her seated open shot put event at Knox.

In the team standings, the 40-plus and under 14 men and the under 20 and under 18 women continued their unbeaten run for a fourth straight round, while the under 16 women also chalked up a victory.

The Shield season now breaks for the Victorian All Schools Track and Field Championships and the Victorian Track Relays Championships before resuming on Saturday, November 18, with the Tom Kelly Athletics Track in Doncaster set to serve as Essendon’s home venue.
