The first professional athletics meeting of the season is here! The 2016 LiveLighter Mullewa Gift on this Saturday 27th of August 12-4pm.
The Blues are sending a very youthful group of 8 athletes including Luka Samuels, Talia Pisano, Catherine Porter, Rhys Davies, Barrie Kernaghan, Morgan Fletcher, Adam Kopp and Adriaan Pelser. 5 of them will receive tough novice handicaps as they are entering their very first professional race.
Captain Pelser is the most experienced of the group with 4 journeys up north, including 2 victories in the major 120m race. Rhys Davies also has good experience and was runner up in the 2015 Jim Wilson 70m sprint. The North Beach Mullewa squad in this event has an average age of just 15 years old (excluding young Barrie).
