 On Sunday the Victorian Masters held the Pentathlon Championships with Laura and Campbell competing in their first pentathlons, both medalling. Campbell broke the long jump record, and both set new club records for the pentathlon. Kath Gawthorn attended to video the sprints to allow for electronic times and assist generally. Thanks Kath.

For those keen for cross-country, the season kicks off with 6km relays at Jells Park on April 18th.
