10. Jenny Stevenson (1999)




Jenny’s involvement with the club came through Mike’s participation of course.  Always willing to help out, Jenny soon became a familiar face in charge of the jumps pit at track and field with young children Sarah and Andrew helping as well.

 

When a vacancy arose in organising other field events Jenny turned her efforts to the middle of the track.  Later a vacancy arose at the finish line and Jenny has been there ever since often in charge of lap counting whether it be interclub, state or national events.  Jenny is presently Chief Organiser of Officials; a demanding job given the number of events conducted each season and the reluctance of some to assist in this area.

 

The family participation in athletics also included her parents Bill and Barbara Westcott who have arranged a drink station at Masters and SAB runs for many years.

 

Jenny was also awarded Life Membership to Athletics South and Tasmanian Masters Athletics in 2015 (on the same weekend!).
