Season 20/21 Presentation Day

Yarra Ranges Athletics celebrated a fantastic end to our 2020-21 track & field season on Sunday.

Warm, sunny skies made for a fun family carnival atmosphere at Morrison Reserve. Games on the infield, impromptu races and more bouncy castles than could be used kept everyone entertained. A steady supply of food and drink from the BBQ and canteen meant everyone left happy and full.

Congratulations to all out athletes and families on a fabulous season. A you have all contributed to a fun, summer of track & field. Special thanks to the senior crew who helped on the BBQ and canteen and our very hard working canteen managers Uli and Georgia for making it run smoothly.

There were a few special awards presented to:

  • Tori Kincaid (Don Cruse Award)
  • Summer Hathaway (Petra Sank Award)
  • Jamie Strudley (Rob Belli Award)
  • Gordon Koel and Caitlyn Pointon (Committee Award Boys and Girls)
  • Pointon Family (Thank You Family Award)
  • our club champions Ky Harris, Kaylah Cannon, Zoe Clarke, Emily Fiedler, Mitchell Pointon, Sasha Carroll, Beau McKinnon and Kayla Patton.

Congratulations to Comets for winning the team based inter-club competition last weekend.
