AVSL Round Twelve

AVSL Round Twelve ended up being the perfect day to round out the track season, seeing all clubs having large participation numbers, ensuring their clubs could gain as much points as possible. We even saw 8 records fall over the weekend alongside numerous outstanding performances.

Yet another great weekend out for Yual Reath, after competing at the Maurie Plant on Thursday he jumped 2.17m placing him 3rd, he came back to Llanberris to show his skills and determination where he then jumped another PB and BRAC Record of 2.28m. Maurie Plant also saw Cooper Sherman take on the Men’s Peter Norman Memorial 200m, he finished in a time of 21.73s. We also saw Layla Watson compete in the mixed 4 x 400m Victoria U20 team which finished in a time of 3:27.60m. Another regular to these big events was Katherine Mitchell who won in the Women’s Javelin with a throw of 62.12m.  A great night full of spectacular performances and amazing to see our Ballarat Athletes competing in Australia’s highest-ranking event.

A big record to fall this weekend was the U14 Women’s 4 x 200m Relay, an almost 35-year record with the Ballarat Harriers team knocking it off with a time of 1:55.89m. Pauline Graham extended her records in the Women’s 50+ Discus and Hammer Throw over the weekend, as well as Kim Gleeson in the Women’s 40+ Discus, Leon Whitehand in the Men’s 50+ Hammer Throw, Julie Pendred in the Women’s 50+ 300m Hurdles and Claire Johnson in the Women’s 40+ 3,000m. All great achievements and no better time then right before State Championships!

A big congratulations to Lucy Jones who was the highest point scorer in the Ballarat region and 4th across the state with a total of 1,459 points. Lucy’s highest scoring event was the 800m, with run of 2:16.34 giving her a massive 515 points.

A great effort by the clubs in the last round with Ballarat Harriers, Ballarat Y.C.W and Eureka all using their Power Plays. Ballarat Y.C.W continued their good streak placing 2nd this round with 14,308 points and this has them rounding out the season in 2nd place for Division 4 which will lead them to get an automatic promotion into Division 3 next AVSL season. Looking at Division 2, Eureka scored very well with 22,546 points putting them in placing 3rd in conjunction with their powerplay it gave them enough points to jump over Wyndham and escape relegation. Ballarat Harriers finished the round in 7th place with a total of 17,522 points, putting them middle of the table for Division 2 they stay safe for this year. Lastly the Premier Division saw Wendouree finish the round in 6th place with a total of 30,042 points and giving them the chance to fight for the top spot next season in the Premier Division again.
