MUAC’s AV Shield Teams returned to Werribee in top condition taking two wins and extending their leads at the top of the Division 1 Womens and Mens ladders. At the halfway point of the season, MUAC two premier teams are eyeing Zone Premierships and the AV Shield Final at the end of January. The MUAC Division 1 took their second win in a row, with strong performances in the field leading the way. Wins for Cath Macrae in the Pole Vault and Kaitlin Morgan in the Long Jump were supported by full teams in the Javelin, Long Jump, Pole Vault, 100m and 400m and a strong relay team. The strong participation focus meant that only 10 scoring spots were unfilled across the whole team.  On the track Ellen Schaef won the 1500m and Gwen Thornton took victory in the 100m hurdles.

15608123340_d2a88a02a1_bThe MUAC Division 1 Men built their Round 5 victory with an avalanche of track running, filling the 100m, 400m, 1500m and 5000m and two relay teams with wins to Martin Mashford in the 5000m (and a 2nd for him in the 1500m). Aaron Page took the win in the Long Jump with a full team behind him. The team left only 9 scoring positions unfilled, and took the victory by nearly 100 points.

Many thanks to the athletes, parents and volunteers who helped run the pole vault.

MUAC is back in action on Sunday, 23d November for AV Shield Round 6 at Aberfeldie which also marks the start of Zone v Zone competition.
