28 Nov 2019 State Relay Day
This report has been provided by Dennis Thring, Northern Districts Team Manager (Senior Aths):
The Northern Districts Jets had a very successful day at the Athletics South Australia State Relay Day which was held on Saturday 23rd November 2019.
NDAC had 46 athletes competing on the day, these athletes competed in 37 different relays across the U14, U16, U18 & Open age groups. There were 20 track relays, 12 throws relays and 5 jumps relays. All athletes gave their all for their club and the respective teams that they were in.
