Training has now commenced on Thursday night at Tilley Reserve in the DS Goodes Pavilion (bottom hall) from 5-6.30pm. We ask for a gold coin donation to help us cover the cost of hiring the hall. Anyone is welcome to join in these sessions which are focused on fitness in preparation for the upcoming season.
There have been a number of GGLAC athletes continuing through to the Cross Country season, setting some personal bests and achieving some really good results for the club.

Congratulations goes to the following athletes who represented GGLAC and qualified for this event:
- Olivia Williams
- Jack Williams
- Mason Edwards
- Ella Edwards
- Imogen Edwards
- Catelyn Monaghan
- Aiden Edwards
- Tyler Edwards
- Hunter Fieldhouse
- Cooper Fieldhouse
- Rubi Fieldhouse

Special mention goes to Jack Williams for having an outstanding season and winning his age group (U11B) at the state level.
Big thanks also goes out to Owen for marshalling and Terry for being starter for all of the races held.
The Cross Country season takes place all around the state from May – July, from Carisbrooke to Mt Barker, Enfield to Barossa, Tea Tree Gully to Tatachilla. Up hill and down dale, through rivers and streams, over ditches and fallen logs, the terrain is always a challenge, and then of course, there is the weather!
Well done to all, you’ve done your club proud.
Enjoy the well-deserved break and rest up ready for 2019-2020 Track and Field season, just around the corner.
