Among the medals were gold to Shepparton’s Zoe Boldiston, Kyabram’s Emily Lawson and Benalla’s Chloe Robertson, while Lawson’s brother Daniel, Murchison’s Kiara Catania, Nathalia’s Caitlin Hawks and Grahamvale’s Amanda Heard took home silver.
Boldiston, who competes with South Bendigo, won the women’s under-18 5

‘‘I was happy to get some good times, and also to win, but I was definitely more excited about the times,’’ Lawson said.
Robertson, representing Athletics Essendon, won the women’s under-18 hammer throw with 45.58
Lawson’s brother Daniel was not far off matching his sister’s feat, bringing home silver in the men’s under-15 400
He smashed his PBs in the process, taking about six seconds off his 800
Catania claimed silver in the women’s under-18 400
Hawks, another to miss most of last season after tearing her ACL, claimed two medals with a second place in the under-20 400
Hawks also came third in the 100
