Our Maribyrnong Sports Academy team has arrived in the USA and hit the ground running from day 1. After landing in LA at 9am the team was rushed to the domestic terminal to catch an American Airlines flight to Salt Lake City. The first night action included meeting Utah Jazz aussie Joe Inglis and watching an amazing game which saw the Jazz defeat The Spurs by 2 points.
A trip to the University of Utah and the Lava Hot Springs were also highlights of the first 2 days. Catch all the action of days 1 and 2 of the 2018 Simplot Games tour below. MSA would once again like to thanks Simplot Australia and their partners Linfox, Oliver Wight and Orora for their support of the team.
Competition got underway on day 4 of our tour with the girls 3200m heats run and our girl Bianca Puglisi did an amazing job setting the 15th fastest time of 51 girls who competed. Hepas of snow, Heaps of fun and plenty of training.
