Club vs Club Trophy

Yarra Ranges Athletics held the annual inter-club competition on the weekend where the 4 clubs compete for the coveted Champion Club trophy. Final results were not available as we go to print, but the scores were very close throughout the morning. Some tense, hard fought relay races at the end of the program may be the deciding events. The winning club will be announced at the Presentation day this coming Sunday.

The competition was fierce throughout he morning with fantastic number of PB performances on what will be the last day of competition for the 2020-21 summer.

State Relay Championships – This Weekend

Good luck to all out athletes competing at the Little Athletics Victoria State relay Championships at Casey Fields this coming weekend. Relays are a fun event so enjoy the competition.
