On a hot weekend our Junior and Senior relay teams did a great job out at SOPAC.
On Saturday our junior teams performed admirably. It's not possible to list all of the results here but the highlights included four gold medals, one silver and two bronze. There were 19 top ten placings and five club records set. A Special note also goes to our U11 girls 4 x 100m team who secured a State Record (beating the previous mark in both the heat and the final). An awesome effort all round from our juniors.
On Sunday Little As, with 40 degree temperatures predicted, made the welcome decision to use a reduced format - making the track heats into timed finals. With our juniors performing so well our seniors were under pressure to get some strong results too and they didn't disappoint. The seniors won six gold medals, five silver medals, and one bronze. Just under half of our teams finished in the top five. The senior teams also established new marks for six club records. In this case a special mention goes to the U17 boys 4 x 100m and the U17 boys Shot/Discus teams who both managed to set State Records. Strong results for our seniors.
Well done to every athlete who participated on the weekend.
The club's entries for the 2014 Zone Chjampionships have been submitted. Attached is the confirmation from Zone of the events in which our athletes are registered to compete.
For athletes in U7-U12 age groups - If there is a discrepancy between your nomination and the confirmed event that you are not aware of, please refer back to your age manager first and, if an error exists, ask them to advise Peter and Sally.
For athletes in the U13-U17 age groups - Please check your events carefully for any errors and advise Peter and Sally if a correction is needed.
This should be done by 11am on 29 November 2014.
Parents of athletes competing at Zone need to volunteer for a duty as a condition of your child competing at the Zone. This can be done at our carnivals on 22 and 29 November through Sally at the admin desk. Register early when a greater choice of duties is available (which might be more convenient for you!). Duties will be allocated to you if you have not volunteered.
Please visit our uniforms page for full details of the NSLAC uniform. Jetstar patches are now available from your age manager and must be sewn to your uniform. The Jetstar patch must be sewn on horizontally and can not be trimmed in any way. All IGA patches should have been removed.
Richard and Danny took receipt of a new shade tent from Walkers Party Hire during our week three carnival at Rotary. Walkers Party Hire generously donated the tent to NSLAC and I'm sure we'll get plenty of use out of it. Make sure you look Walkers up for your next event at www.walkershire.com.au.
