AV Shield 10

The track is on schedule for the end of the month! The Line Marking team is hard at work making all the necessary calculations.
It was great to see AE athletes competing in the same uniform on Saturday. Please ensure you wear the “new” singlet top (mainly black) in all comps, including VMC etc.
We will soon have a new “Super Dooper” web site, which will include a You Tube link. All club information will be on this site.
Round 10 saw 6 wins, two 2nds and one disappointing 3rd. However, all teams are well placed to move onto the Shield Final on Feb 23. The MOP are equal top with Melb Uni but Western Aths are not far behind. The M16 team are also equal top, but KSB are just one premiership point behind. The boys need a win in round 11!
It was fantastic to see Olympian, Chris Erickson back up his 5000m walk with a tough 1500m at Doncaster…..great team work!
Club Vice President, Andrew Boudrie made a welcome return from foot injury, strolling through a 100m / 400m double.
Some top performances at Doncaster from Jack Hale (100m, 10.74s, 504pts), Harrison Williams (long jump, 7.27m, 516 pts) and Chris Mitrevski (long jump, 7.75m, 540 pts).
