Tonight’s competition matched the excitement of being back with some close finishes. Noah Jones just held out Dave Palmer in the 100m with Fred Barnett setting a new venue record for the distance. In the first heat of the 3000m won by Like Considine, Dave Elward broke Mike McAvoys long standing record. While the second heat saw a win to Rachael Thompson. Considine also took out the final event, the 1000m where Fred Barnett set her second record for the night.
Many thanks to Fiona and Kath for officiating tonight.
