9.02.2024 We Rocked the Relays - now for Round 11

Congratulations and Thank You to all our OVA teams that competed in State Relays on Sunday. Medals, records and fabulous finishes were the order of the day. Well done to all!

Interclub Round 11

Interclub starts at 9am this Saturday with the 5000m,Hammer and Long Jump.  There is a 60m Dash included in the program this week.  

PLEASE NOTE - your sign in sheet will look different so please check it carefully ensuring you enter the right events and have the correct shoes!  Saturday is another World Ranking meet which means that shoes will be checked for legality and some events may be divided accordingly.  Interclub is still about personal performances, premiership points and having fun - world ranking meets do make things a little more complicated for our officials, so please be patient with them and follow the directions on the forms.

Shotput will be at 9.50am and 10.50am.  A lot of our officials and committee will be away with Little Athletics commitments this weekend, so we ask for volunteers to help out at both events this week.  Jobs are easy and you will be shown what to do.

Relay is 4 x100m - put your name down at the tent.

Also remember - if you are withdrawing from an event please let the official or admin know so you can be scratched, especially for hurdles and sprints.

Remember to check in at the OVA tent and put your name in for the random draw. And sign up for the relay while you are there!

Keep working on those Premiership Points - not too many more rounds to see who gets the Trophy and the Running Edge voucher. Issy Gray and Bailey van den Broek appear to be leading the way at the moment.

Good Luck and Congratulations

Congratulations to Alex Hanigan on a win in the Vic Milers A Race this week - and a PB and a World Junior Qualifier!

Good Luck to Adele Woodward who heads to Adelaide for the Road Race Walking Championships.
