Athlete of the Month is put together by past athlete Monique Enright. Not only is it a wonderful thing for Hobart Districts but it also helps Monique with one of her High School subjects. Thanks Monique!
During this season Monique Enright will be taking photos at our meets and uploading them onto OneDrive. A permanent link will exist from the camera icon above. Come back regularly and see if your kids have been targetted with her lens.
Parents, show your support for Hobart Districts at the Northern All State with an adult version of the Hobart Districts top. See Susan or Jackie at the registration table on Thursday night.
