A beautiful morning for athletics at the Domain this morning, and some big numbers out there competing.Congratulations to the girls for winning their second round in a row, while the boys moved up to 3rd place.SO, who wins the Steigens this week?? In a very rare occurrence, the magic number was 65 for both genders. The only person to match that was Emma BRAY in the Hammer, with 43.65m.The combined points total was 1230, meaning we were looking for 30, and it looks like the hammer has taken over from the long jump this week, with Arielle CANNELL taking the socks with a throw of 60.30, while another pair will be going to All Schools in Perth with Charlotte CUTRALE earning a pair with her 100m time of 13.30.Might have to change the rules, that is 7 to the girls and none to the boys, can't have that in the 21st Century πŸ™‚Don't forget next weekend's interclub is a 3pm Sunday start, due to the Australian Primary Schools Track & Field Championships in Launceston next weekend. ...
