MEMBERS of Cassowary Coast Athletics Club had a very competitive time at the Cairns Athletics Twilight Meet held recently at Barlow Park. 

All members conducted themselves in a very professional manner and the Club is proud to have such talented and respectful athletes.

Quinn and Brady Devaney appreciated the opportunity of being out on the track in Cairns and achieved many personal bests and places.
