MUAC turns it up to eleven

AV Shield Round 11


MUAC rocked Aberfeldie on Saturday winning both Women’s and Men’s Division 1 and leading Yellow Zone to an emphatic victory over Blue in Zone v Zone. The MUAC Women took their 9th win from 10 starts garnering 7145 points, the highest total across the state. Lead by Elizabeth Ruach’s two relay teams, the team won by more than two thousand points. ┬áThe A relay team of Emily Lawson, Ruach, Salamata Konate and Jayne Iwunze collected the highest point score of the day, 507, with their 4:05.9 4×400 beating the current state champions Sandringham in the process. ┬áKudos to all those who stepped up to allow us to fill two teams. Ellen Schaef’s 2:09.93 800m in the windy conditions was the top individual performance of the day, delivering 500 points to the team. Kira Davey lead the way with her exuberance, power and punctuality; her 1580 points was the only four figure tally of the day for MUAC.

The MUAC Men bounced back to take a narrow 300 point victory over Essendon, their first in five rounds to secure the Zone Premiership. Joel Mason, who prays daily to St Hubbins, the patron saint of quality footwear, made his Shield season debut after a recent PB in Tasmania to jump 1.95m and collect top points for the club, along with Charlie Park’s 8:44 in the 3000m. With such a narrow margin of victory every performance at Aberfeldie contributed to the win but the decisive factor is best left unsolved really.

A big thanks to Tim Thomas, Leon D’Onofrio, David Sullivan, Matilda Broe and Ben Burgess for helping out at the High Jump.

The athletics action continues thick and fast with Vic Milers Club 3 on Thursday at Box Hill and the ultimate round of AV Shield at Wiliamstown on Saturday. With this much action MUAC will be having a good time all the time.
