Track Report
Posted Saturday 31 Jan 2009 by Michael Gentle

Having a large number of our younger athletes already selected to compete at the Zone LAC Championships all weekend meant that our Club, like most others, face a reduced potential to field competitors. St George had ten competitors make it out to the SOPAC track at Homebush for this Allcomers meet.

Great efforts all round, with several St George athletes achieving season-best performances.

A club record was broken by
Bridey Delaney
, while
Luke Hamer
Chris Barakat
Todd Peters
all claimed top-3 positions in their events. It was also good to see
Dale Jones
Isaq Ali
Paul Windridge
Daniel Siepen
back in action and performing strongly.
