No lazing on a Sunday afternoon for MUAC

AV Shield Round 2

15384217879_3abf7cc862_zThere was no rest for MUAC athletes who took to the Abefeldie track in force on Sunday, 19th of October, for AV Shield’s second round. A strong showing by both the Womens and Mens Division 1 teams sees MUAC’s men remain undefeated after two rounds. It was a close battle for the MUAC Women, falling to KSB by just 3 points.  The Men had no such trouble, streaking clear of second placed Essendon by more than 250 points.  The MUAC men filled all the scoring positions in the 200m, 800m, 5000m, Shot Put and the relay, equalling the Women who filled the 200m, 800m, Shot Put, High Jump and relay. As the competition gets fiercer, MUAC will look to fill as many events as possible to garner maximum points and keep us at the top of the ladder. A big thanks to all the MUAC athletes who helped out on the day at the Shot Put, the club’s duty for the day. Without these volunteers, the competition cannot go ahead. Impressive individual performances came from Ellen Schaef who won the Womens 800m in 2:20.5 in a solo effort, and Kath Iannello who won the Hammer (18.91m) and collected nearly 30% of MUAC’s points, competing in the 200m, High Jump, Triple Jump and Shot Put as well. Seamus Hayes won the Div 1 Shot Put with 11.66m and Nick Earl took a windy 5000m win with 15:11.7. The Mens 4x400m team took a comfortable victory. There were some impressive debuts for the club by Daniel Pratt, Ashwin Singh and Junkers Zhou.


MUAC will be back in action next Saturday for Round 3 of AV Shield at Williamstown.
