2018-11-17 Shield Round 6 40+

Doncaster Newsletter 40+

Doncaster 40+ team put in a solid effort this week, though with Campbell restricted to shot put and a couple of others unavailable, it wasn’t as strong a performance. Daryl and Warren broke a couple of club records, though Daryl was left scratching his head after he scored more in the shot put than the distances he trains for.

The shield competition is a numbers game, and it would be really good to have a few more athletes competing and qualifying for the finals. Remember, if you sign up now, you can sign up for “pay as you go” and just pay $20 each week instead of paying for the whole season. Of course you can’t enter on the day then.

Next Saturday is the State Relay Championships and we have teams in the 4×100, 4×400 and 4×1500. Best of luck!
