Pauline Graham took out the 50+ Women’s Hammer throw with 25.81m to break her own previous record.

A round of applause for Bridie Shanahan who was the highest point scorer in the Ballarat region with 1,232 points. Bridie’s highest scoring event was the Discus, her furthest throw was 32.90m which amassed her a total of 445 points.

Great work from the clubs over the weekend, starting with the Premier division, Wendouree placed 7th. In Division 2, Ballarat Harriers placed 7th and Eureka placed 8th, finally Division 4 where YCW scored well to place into 2nd.
