At the conclusion of the track and field season, Keilor Little Athletics awards a number of trophies, including Boys and Girls Champion, and Volunteer of the Year.
The Boys and Girls Champion are chosen based on points based system, which rewards both participation and performances. This system has been carefully calibrated so that athletes from any group can win this.
The Volunteer of the Year is selected by the committee, and is always a difficult decision for the committee to make, as there are always many suitable nominees.
The winners of these awards for the 2018/19 track and field season are:
Girls Champion - U9 Sienna Gec. Sienna has had quite a season, also winning two golds medals at the State Track and Field Events, a gold medal at the State Relay Championships, and the U9 gold medal at the State Multi-event.
Boys Champion - U10 Koby Bewick . Koby is our centre champion for the second year running, and besides this award, won two bronze medals at State Track and Field, and also a gold and two silver medals at the state relay championships.
Volunteer of the Year - Michelle Graham. Michelle has the very challenging role of managing Team Keilor at regional and state events, which involves liaising with regional and state bodies, monitoring participation, creating a roster list, managing a roster list on the day, liaising with event directors, dealing with all participation families, and then writing a post-match report. Altogether this is a huge committment, and Michelle does this in a very calm and friendly manner.
Michelle, like Sienna above is shown with our outgoing Centre President Aaron Carmichael. Aaron had the very difficult job of Centre President for a year, and left the centre in very good shape - we thank Aaron greatly for his hard work during the year.
