Dear members,

After a week off for All-Schools the AV Shield season resumes with competition being held at Knox and Williamstown (Timetables attached, start times to events subject to change depending on entry numbers).
Field events will start at 1pm for both programs, track event start times are staggered with the first event at Williamstown (Men’s Steeple all ages) starting at 12:45pm and the first event at Knox (All Women 3000m) commencing at 1:15pm, if you are competing in either of these track events you must supply a lap scorer otherwise your performance will not be recorded.

All-Schools wrap up

Firstly we would like to say a massive thank you to our members who put their hand up to help with our club duty requirements during last weekend’s All-Schools. By being able to provide a full quota of helpers for the Championships, AV have informed us that it has helped improve the overall quality and efficiency of the competition, and everyone at DAC is to be congratulated for being able to help.

All DAC athletes are to be congratulated on representing the club and their schools with pride and putting their best foot forward in their event(s). Congratulations to the following athletes who won medals:

Gold: Owen Rice (Under 15 Shot Put), Abbey Gartlan (Under 16 Para Discus), Abbey Caldwell (Under 18 800m and 1500m), Declan Carman (Under 18 Discus and Shot Put) and Haimish Lazaro (Under 20 3000m Steeple)
