The 2018 Northern Metropolitan Zone Championships are run and won.
NRCLAC were well represented by 187 athletes competing in 630 events and 4 relays. We had some great results over the two days. Thank you for giving it your best and doing it with a smile : )
Congratulations to our relay teams:
• Junior Girls (Evana, Kara, Chloe, and Eliza) coming second,
• Junior Boys (Oliver, Samuel, Benji, and Finn) winning gold,
• Senior Girls (Andrea, Monique, Lily, and Lauren) coming second,
• Senior Boys (Jacob, Joshua, Rajan, and Nathan) winning second place (with an exciting last leg!).
All of which combining to be our best relay results for a number of years. Thank you to Annika for coaching them.
A special thank you to our Multi-Class athletes who were able to compete at Zone for the second time ever. There were two events this year, 100M and Discus, and it was great that NRCLAC had the majority of the athletes. Thank you to Kieron, Adam, and Ben for officiating the events. It was well received, and a very proud moment for the club. Hopefully we can do it again next season with more events and even more athletes.
Another highlight was the U17's lap of honour. Hopefully they leave Little Athletics with many great memories and even greater friendships.
Thank you to the parents who did their helper duties. It was pretty hot out there this year. I know your children appreciate seeing their parents make a contribution.
Thank you to the NRCLAC Officials who helped run the carnival. It couldn't happen without your contributions: Jenny, Les, Ben W, Joe, Adam, Greg, John, Kieron, Ben J, Sankaran, Pia, Chelsea, Bernard, Kathryn, Liz, Marija, Natalie, Dylan, Drew, Jo, Vicki, and Amish. You may have been roped into more than you were expecting.
Special mention to golden tonsils Garry on the PA. Great job all weekend.
Thank you to Amanda for taking photos all weekend.
Thank you to Committee members and families, who helped set up and pack up our area. We had the most tents and looked the most organised.
And most of all, thank you to NRCLAC Team Managers, Annika and Carwyn. There's so much work that goes into organising nominations, selecting the team, organising parent duties, checking uniforms, marshalling during the day, being the first to arrive and the last to leave. Thank you. Legends ; )
