3 Shield Premierships

 

WE WON 3 PREMIERSHIPS! Read on for a report from Janine who was a fantastic leader for the long day.  Great effort by all 8 teams from Essendon. Congratulations to competitors and organisers in all teams. Essendon winners –  girls under 18 and under 16, boys under 16. The Women’s U20 (runners-up) will win an AV flag too. So many people did so much. How about Tamara Mancuso and James Wrout answering phone calls to return to the track to fill relay spots, having competed earlier!
