Last year I said it may be some sort of sporting record – and more than a few national, state and local teams would love to have it in the win column – but our Little A’s have taken out the 2012 Little Athletics Zone Shield for the 40th consecutive time. Now they have done it again for the 41st consecutive time.
The Zone Shield is a competition among six little athletics groups from Sydney’s inner zone. Randwick-Botany Little Athletics, led by their indomitable President Tony Vecellio, went to the Zone Shield and showed why they are the best – yet again. The local Little A’s blitzed the competition. Tony was over the moon on behalf of the Little A’s (and with some justification).
I am proud of all the time and effort Tony and his volunteer team have consistently put into building and strengthening the Little As from year to year. They certainly keep going from strength to strength and the City of Botany is tremendously lucky to have them leading such a great athletic centre. I know that local children and parents also feel this way.
