AVSL 2022/23 Round 3 Wrap
Round 3 Date: Sat 22nd Oct 2022
After a wet and gloomy start to the morning, the weather held off for competition at Knox and Doncaster. By the end of the day it was beautiful blue skies - go Melbourne weather! Our performances are improving as our club numbers grow - we are looking forward to Round 4 at Duncan McKinnon on the 12th November 2022.
Welcome to newcomers
Welcome to new members who made their debut in track & field for Glenhuntly AC:
Our standing on the Premier Division Ladder
Our AVSL Round 3 provisional finish was 4th, scoring better than Round 2 and pipped by a team exercising its PowerPlay. AV has not updated the Ladders since round 1 as Geelong were not able to compete due to track flooding and Bendigo were not able to compete in round 3.

Each club must supply a minimum number of club helpers at each round of AVSL. Glenhuntly AC relies on parents, partners, friends and our competing athletes to fill the B Zone Club Duty Roster each week. Our AVSL competitions couldn’t happen without the fabulous efforts of our club helpers. A big thank you to the following people who were our club helpers at the Knox venue for Round 3:
Victoria Haritos , Larissa Honner, Fiona Noble, Ilan Freedman, Kurt Golonka
Apologies for missing Stuart Mackie and Alex Newman from AVSL R2 Pole Vault duty and cleanup.
Apologies if anyone was missed, please update the Club Duty spreadsheet.
