The Championships from 28 Feb-2Mar at the home of Victorian Athletics saw Sarah McSweeney defend her Victorian title in the 3000m steeplechase and break her own club record, running 10:25.01.  Mark Kirwan came agonisingly close to claiming the club record in the 3000m steeplechase as well. An impressive silver medal in 9:09.81 finds him just .01 outside the club record. Kath Iannello took home a silver medal in the Pole Vault on the Friday night, vaulting 3.70m. Aaron Page won bronze in the decathlon, scoring 6535 points.

There were strong top 8 performances from Jo Bromfield, Hannah Alderton, Carmen Deane, Simon Greig, Kaitlin Morgan, Jacquie Sharples, Jarrod Pageot, James Pullan, Genevieve Lawrence and Sophie Barker.
