State Individual Championships
Congratulations to the 42 athletes who competed at the State Individual Championships in Launceston over the weekend of March 9 and 10.
All athletes did themselves, their families, and Hobart Districts proud. Also doing us proud were the many parents who helped out on sites, ably marshalled by Susan McLeod.
Full results are now posted. Hobart Districts athletes won 24 gold, 25 silver, and 16 bronze medals.
TLAA State Service Awards - Brett Johnstone and Andrew Shepherd
At the 2013 State Championships a special presentation was made to two very special parents/committee members of HDLAC. Brett Johnstone and Andrew Shepherd were each acknowledged with a State Service Award for their commitment to Little Athletics at club and state level.
If you don't know Brett or Andrew, look for the two gentlemen who never get to see their children compete because they are setting up sites, on the microphone, entering results, starting races, counting laps, officiating on records, ... , or doing something equally important behind the scenes. Brett's business, Zone 3, is also a significant sponsor of Little Athletics at club and state level.
Congratulations Brett and Andrew. Each award is an affirmation of your contribution to the healthy state of Little Athletics in Tasmania, and especially at Hobart Districts. It is well deserved and we are extremely lucky to have both of you at our club!
