Round 3 of the AV Shield saw the Athletics
Club's Senior Women win in Williamstown
. Windy conditions could not prevent point-scoring machine Kira Davey from earning impressive results in discus, javelin, long jump, 100m, 400m, 400m hurdles, and pole vault. Commonwealth Games gold medalist Jemima Montag again impressed in the 3000m walk, while the Division One Men came in 3rd place behind Essendon and Western Athletics.
Club's Senior Men's 7s side came 4th at the Bendigo Goldfield 7s
over the weekend, Victoria's largest 7s tournament which saw over 40 local and international teams compete. It was the 4th year of the competition which has grown in popularity alongside Rugby 7s nationally, including the AON Uni 7s competition
in which the University fielded a team for the first time this year and which finished up over the weekend.
Club's fairytale unbeaten run came to an end in its last match of the home-and-away season, losing 9 - 16 to the Western Crusaders
. However, the side's 9 wins from the 10-game season was enough to propel it into the playoffs in two weeks' time.
