AV Shield Round 9

December 16, 2017

Box Hill’s under 18 women’s team made up some much-needed ground last weekend, while other teams held their strong position going into the Christmas break. The under 16 men’s team will also have to maximise points in the remaining AV Shield rounds after Christmas in order to qualify for the final.

December 10, 2017

Box Hill teams men’s teams are in the top two in Men’s Division 1, Over 40, Under 18 and Under 14, and are a close third in the Under 16 division. Our women’s teams are in the top two in Division 1, Under 16 and Under 14, and are a close third in the Under 18 division. It is possible that all nine of our teams could qualify for the Shield Final on February 10, so we need as many athletes as possible contesting the remaining rounds.

There is some controversy about the interpretation of the Shield rules regarding abandoned competition. Since competition at both Yarra Ranges and Doncaster were incomplete due to the weather, this round might not count for finals eligibility.
