We’ve just completed an action packed weekend at Lakeside Stadium in the LA Vic State Championships.
Congratulations to the 87 athletes from Knox Little Athletics Centre who participated. There were some fantastic results including plenty of PBs. For the athletes who didn’t medal, we’re very proud of their achievements competing at such a high level of competition. For athletes who didn’t win a medal, most scored a new shirt. Well done kids!
The final medal count was:
U9B Jaydan Wigney participated in 7 races (3 heats, 4 finals) over the weekend and finished with 2 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze in 800m, 400m, 200m and 100m in his first ever LA Vic State Championships. Well done Jaydan!
Congratulations to Fran’s walkers who won 11 medals in total.
We also have at least one unconfirmed Knox record which should be confirmed shortly.

Program/timetable and clashes, stadium map and duty roster.
This weekend is the LA Vic State Track & Field Championships being held at Lakeside stadium – Albert Park.
By now, you should have checked the previous website post to see if you’ve qualified. For the athletes who have qualified, please ensure you leave sufficient time to arrive at the venue before your duty and events.
You are required to check-in with the Knox Team Managers when you arrive at the venue for the first time each day.
Ensure you are wearing the correct uniform with black shorts, no logo and ensure you have a Jetstar patch sewn on your top. Incorrect uniform can result in athletes being refused entry to the call room at the uniform check point.

The duty roster has also changed and is attached. There will potentially be some flexibility with duty but please co-ordinate any changes with Mirella. If you will not be at the venue during your allocated duty time, please let Mirella know to avoid delaying the running of an event.
