DAC Mile & Vic 100 Yards Championships

(Our gold medallist in the VIC 100 yards Champs – Matthew Friar)

It was a great night and DAC athletes distinguished themselves in the DAC Mile, and the 100 yards which was the Victorian Championships for the open athletes.

There were events for Juniors and Masters. Various age groups were accommodated by using the age-grading system to determine the place getters. This made it interesting for the Masters milers, as they were in various heats, depending on their seed time, and had to wait until a few races were complete.

Congratulations to winners, new recruit Matthew Friar, a clear winner in the open 100 yards with a blistering time of 9.79, Sue Kilmartin in the masters mile and Katrina Cheung in the junior 100 yards.

Thanks to all those who helped on the day, particularly the camera operators, allowing the livestream to happen for a fraction of the usual cost. Special mention to Darryl Kilmartin, hurtling down the back straight on the back of the golf cart with a camera on his shoulder.

This event was livestreamed and videos of races are available to watch at the bottom of the results of each event in the Results Hub: https://athsvic.resultshub.com.au/#

AVSL Round 5

Again venues were a long way from our home track, but Doncaster climbed back up to eighth this round. However, both under 14 teams finished fifth in the state.

It was a big welcome to Matthew Friar, who topped the state in the open 100 metres with a quick 10.44, and welcome back to Thomas Reynolds who topped the state in the under 20 400 metres with a sizzling 46.55!
