Knox results from LAVic State Relays

Last Saturday we had 46 relay teams competing in the LAVic state relay championships at Albert Park.

We would like to thank all our athletes, parents, coaches, team managers and photographers for all the help and support during the relay season and the state relay event.

We are very proud of all the athletes who participated.

Knox Little Athletics Centre won 10 medals in total and came close to winning more with a few 4th places.

State championships are always very competitive and we continue to be amongst the best in Victoria. The baton changes were excellent which is a testament to the coaching and training during the weeks leading up to the big day.

Ray Abley Gift and Multi-event day Sat 20 Dec

This Saturday we have the Ray Abley Gift and multi-event day.

Ray Abley Gift

The Ray Abley gift is an exciting race not to be missed; a handicapped race with athletes from U9 to U16. Older athletes start the race at a further distance than the youngsters and they all sprint to the line for a close finish.

There will be two races – a boy’s race and a girl’s race. Athletes who participated in relays this season have been lucky enough to be selected by their coach to participate in the gift.

There will be a short break in the program at 9:30am to run the Gift.

Multi-Event

The multi-event day is a warm up for the state multi-event held in Moe on Sat 31 Jan and Sun 1 Feb. Entries for state close on Tue 13 Jan. Register on the LA Vic website.

This Saturday, U9-U16 athletes will compete in events similar to those at state (see below).
Younger athletes:
– U6&7: 100m, 400m Discus & LJ
– U8:100m, 600m, 60mH, Discus & LJ.

David Thomson is an elite athlete who competed for Australia this year and also won two State Multi-Events in Little Aths. He will be available to sign autographs and talk to families and athletes after the gift.
