Wednesday 31 March 2021

After a wet start to the day the weather cleared but a strong wind persisted down the home straight creating a strong head wind for finishing and blustery conditions for field events.

A good day was had by the Athletics team with late adjustments needing to be made to relay teams due to illness.

A huge thanks to Daryl Williams and the St John’s boys that helped to run the Long Jump so efficiently for our duty responsibilities. Also to Perry Cunningham whose distance team had another great day as well as overseeing other athletes as well.
