AVSL 2022/23: Round 2 Wrap

What a week it’s been. As most of you are aware the Moonee Valley Athletics Centre was under water on Friday. Whilst the flood waters are now receding around the Maribyrnong there was still significant impacts to the roads and flooding affecting the John Landy Athletics Field at Geelong, meaning that events there were cancelled. This, no doubt, affected the turn out for round 2. Well done to all who managed to compete.

Congratulations Ela Uzun on breaking Jemima Montag’s Victorian U13 3000m record in 14:19.01.

We’d also like to acknowledge and congratulate the following athletes on their PBs:
Maggie Armstrong – 1500m (7:13.6)
Rosa Barbanti – 800m (2:31.7)
Charles Barrett – 800m (1:55.8)
Charlotte Jackson – 3000m (10:56.0 – 44 sec PB)
Noah Tarallo – 3000m (10:00.7)

Some outstanding performances across multiple events saw a number of athletes be named in the top 10 Most Valuable Athletes for Zone A. Congratulations to the following: Mackenzie Leith, Amanda Wrout, Hannah Gec, Sienna Gec and Khushnoor Rangi.

Athletics Essendon scored 37, 223 points coming in second place. A great result considering some of our athletes would have been competing in Geelong.

A big thank you to the Athletics Victoria officials for their efforts throughout the day and our club coaches for supporting our athletes.
