State Championships / ALAC Selections - great news!
Congratulations to our athletes for an amazing State Championships performance. Our 84 athletes were at their best and took 8 State titles, 26 medals overall, 40 top 5 finishes (that's 1 in 4 in the top 5), and 70 top 10 finishes. Amazing! To cap it off our U13 athletes Martin Leerberg and Lily Worrall have been honoured with selection into the NSW team for the Australian Little Athletics Championships. ALAC selection is very competitive with just 13 boys and 13 girls from NSW achieving selection.
This year's State Champions are Jason Ho (U-12 100m), Martin Leerberg (U13 1500W), Matthew Hunt (U9 60H), Evan Dransfield (U10 60H and 800m), Sarah Baker (U9 800m), Nicolette D'Onofrio (U14 80H) and Matthew Butler (U13 Shot Put). Both Matthew Butler and Evan Dransfield successfully defended their titles from last season. A fuller summary will appear here soon.
Full results from State will be available here.

Records can be claimed at any time but as they contribute to the Club Championship scoring then please make sure you claim yours by 23 March 2016.
