Athletes return to the field

Olivia Soncin, Carter Stacey, Luke McLellan and Nathaly Tarca were excited to get back out on the field and stretch their legs after Tableland Athletics hosted their first practice last weekend.

Things are starting to heat up on the Tablelands with the gradual return of athletes to their track and field events after Tableland Athletics returned to the field last weekend.

By adhering to social distancing rules and government regulations athletes could only participate in specific track and field events that were held at the Tolga Reserve.

14 senior athletes aged between 11 and 17 years of age got the chance to undertake some form of athletic events including sprints, shotput, discus and finish off with a relay event

Tableland Athletics President Andrew Ford was excited to see athletes back out on the field and stretching their legs.

“The kids were thrilled to bits that something was on offer for them to do,” he said.

“We want to make sure we are doing everything right before we get more kids out and training.

“Once the kids get used to knowing what we can and can’t do it will run more smoothly.”

This weekend will see the return of junior Tableland Athletics athletes as they will commence their training at the Tolga Reserve this Sunday, June 21.
