Before we talk about the weekend let's celebrate OVA! OVA won the RSM Club Multi Event! #GoOVA

Well done to all our team members with great performances across the board showing true OVA spirit to take out the trophy.  We may be one of the smaller clubs but we showed we had great team spirit to take out the prize.

Stellar Performances

This past week has been highlighted by great performances - Alex Hanigan just .06 off the State 1000m record, Jacob Despard winning in Canberra with a PB (and OVA record) and Alexander McKillop getting gold and bronze in Canberra too.  Issy Gray ran a fabulous handicap race on the weekend to take home the sash.  Lots of other OVA runners making finals as well.
