After six long month the 2022/23 AVSL season has finally come to an end. With Playoffs 2 being only a few weeks out from nationals it was fantastic to see a number of athletes use the round as a warmup to prepare for nationals in Brisbane. For those not heading to nationals, it was the perfect end to the end of a long season.
It was fantastic to see that we managed to officially finish the season with some fantastic runs in the 4x400m relays. Well done to the following teams: Open Men: Christian Reinhardt, Vishnu Satish, Tarik Bello and Jannik Ernst; U20 Women: Jayme-Lee Cobain, Emily Mifsud, Audrey Savage and Lara Sacaner; Open Women: Amelia Ashton, Khushnoor Rangi, Joanna Margiolis and Alexis Shead.
