The Parkes Little Athletics Club held an extremely successful Gala Day on Sunday, 12th March at Northparkes Oval. Approximately 150 young athletes travelled from as far as Cobar and Gilgandra to compete.
Athletes aged from six to 17 competed in a wide range of track and field events and the ‘tiny tots’ were also able to join in lots of fun activities.
It was amazing to see so many athletes coming together to compete, have fun, support and encourage one another. There were smiles all around as records were broken, personal bests achieved, medals awarded and new friends made.
A huge congratulations goes to the Parkes Little Athletics Club committee members and all helpers who made the such a huge success.
Parkes Little Athletics Committee President, Kerrie Edwards said, “This years Gala day was one of the best. I’m very grateful for all who contributed, as there were so many.
We appreciate those who travel and look forward to seeing you all again next year.”
This weekend, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th March, Parkes Little Athletics will have eight representatives competing in the Little Athletics State Championships at Sydney Olympic Park in a combined 17 events. This is a huge achievement and will be a great experience. We wish them all well and know they will do their very best.
