A lot of pride on show as MUAC sit atop the HH Hunter Shield

2019 Victorian Track and Field Championships

There was a lot to be proud about for MUAC at the first weekend of the 2019 Victorian Track and Field Championships. The weekend saw the club stage it’s inaugural Pride Round and maintain it’s lead in the HH Hunter Shield competition with one weekend of competition remaining.

Isaac Hockey backed up his Victorian Mile Championship with a win in the metric mile, showing that he is rounding in good form as the Australian Championships approach. Reilly Shaw took bronze to go with his title from last year, and will be looking to collect gold and a Universiade qualifier next weekend in the steeplechase. Roman Anastasios continued the family tradition winning the U18 hurdles in fine style. Olivia Honey made her debut for MUAC in spectacular fashion winning silver in the U20 100m. The MUAC pole vault contingent jumped well with two clearances at 3.80m for Kath Iannello and Tamara Mancuso and 3.70m for Isabelle Napier. Ramzy Osman and Abdi Hasssan, two On Track participants, made their State Championships debuts and will be back next weekend for more.

MUAC sits atop the HH Hunter Shield, named after a MUAC member who died at Gallipoli, and will be working hard to claim the title.

Thanks to Leigh Sherman and Ciara Boyd-Squires Long for helping out with our volunteer duties and Christian Paynter and Liam Schreck for help packing up the MUAC Marquees.

A big thanks as well to all the Victorian Officials who did three long days of work in the oppressive conditions. The sport wouldn’t survive without you!


HH Hunter scores.
