AVSL 2022/23 Round 5 Wrap

Glenhuntly Athletic Club – Latest News

Glenhuntly athletes at Casey Fields

Saturday 19th November 2022

It was a relief to see no serious weather disruptions to Round 5 at both Casey Fields and Meadow Glen, albeit our athletes had to tackle the wind and patches of rain at both venues. We had our walkers compete well in the conditions at Meadow Glen, and our 3000m/5000 m athletes at Casey Fields were blessed with a spell of sunshine for their races late in the day.

Our members wore black armbands in memory of Phil Hutton, who passed away on 14th November. Club Legend, Life Member, and the author of the recently published club history, Phil was a club member for over 60 years and one of our most dedicated and admired members.

Our standing on the Premier Division Ladder

With no new starters this week, no records of note, and perhaps a smaller turnout from the Hunters than at previous rounds, we unfortunately dipped down to 6th place on the Premier Division Ladder. Our most successful age groups in AVSL Round 5 according to Athletic Victoria's State Age Group Scores were our U20 Men who finished 6th in the state with 1,464 points and our Masters Women 40+ who finished 3rd in the state with 5,361 points.

Congratulations to the following athletes who earned a place on Athletic Victoria's 100 Most Valuable Athletes list for Round 5:
