Sensational X Country Team Win Back to Back Premierships

Posted: 20-Sep-2016 by Athletics

Sensational effort team! Zac, Adam and Asher Marks with the pennant.

The final race of the x country season was held last weekend, the Tan relays  – and the great news is that Maccabi division 5 open men’s team have again won the premiership in their division – as we did last season.

Congratulations to all 10 team members – especially Adam Bogatin (captain/manager) who did a marvellous job in putting together the teams – and running as well – and to Zac Ashkanasy who had an absolutely outstanding competition season.

Maccabi Victoria Hall Of Fame Dinner

The Maccabi Victoria Hall of Fame dinner was be held last Thursday evening at St Kilda Town Hall. A huge mazeltov to club Life Member Harry Procel OAM who was elevated from Hall of Fame to the status of Legend! Very well deserved for his endless hours of work for the Maccabi movement not just at club, State and National level but also for World Maccabi.

Also congratulations to long term club friend (and past President of Maccabi Victoria) Russell Jaffe and to ex club athlete Mark Klapish on their selection into the Hall of Fame, as well as the daughter of ex club athlete Alan Segal, Anna Segal – an outstanding athlete who has represented Australia at the Winter Olympics.
