CONGRATULATIONS to all of our athletes who competed at Country Champs!

We finished on 900pts and 172 pts ahead of Nowra Athletics Club.

This trophy was won for many years by Gosford Athletics Club and it is an honor to have won it and bring it back to the Coast.

Two meeting records achieved: Nicky Kelly womens 40-49 800m and George Papalexion mens 40-49 Long Jump

Our first meet back of 2015 was a hot and humid one but that didn’t stop us getting some great times on the track. In the 60m, Mingara Athletics club member Ernie Leseberg was in fine form running a 7.22. Newcomer Tyson Vanderwolf ran the second fastest time of the day with 7.29. Nick Papalexion and Brett Reid also broke the 8 second mark with 7.64 and 7.88. The ladies almost broke the 8 second mark with State Champion Triple Jumper Bethany Kranendonk running a very quick 8.03. Sydney runner Annie Gardiner is back in form running 8.38 and masters champion sprinter Richelle Ingram ran 8.48, still in form after her medal sweep at the Pan Pacific Masters games on the Gold Coast in November.

In the 400m, Saturday saw quite a few new PB’s for the men. Terrigal local Nick Martinlead the field and finished with a 52.92. All schools state champion 800m runner Matt Scarr was hot on his tail and ran a PB of 53.50. Theo Mihellis and Nick Papalexion also both ran season bests with Theo just beating his uncle Nick with 54.79 and Nick running 55.47. The ladies all chased past state and national All Schools 400m and 800m championBess Chippendale who ran 1.01.18. Not far behind was Pan Pacific Masters Games 800m & 1500m gold medal winner Nicky Kelly with 1.03.30. Newcomer this season Jacqui O’Neill has improved out of sight to be chasing the girls and running a PB of 1.04.34.

The 1000m saw a very talented field running with fast times clocked considering the heat. The race was won by another school champion Terry Mihellis in 3.04.57. Up and comerZac Martin stayed with him all the way to finished just behind on 3.07.06. First girl across the line was the multi-talented youngster Allanah Pitcher in 3.25.63. After just completing her HSC, Zoe Duffin-Pruksopun is finding her form again finishing in 3.30.30. Sophie Lanealso deserves a mention with her third fastest female time of 3.43.14 and shows that persistence and hard training gets results.

In the shot put, another Pan Pacific Masters gold medalist Vicki Townsend beat all the men to throw 10.81m. Coming in second for the girls was our local Commonwealth Games starRae Anderson throwing 7.51m. Geoff Crumption out threw the other men with a 9.82m, but not far behind was champion jump and throw coach Matt Horsnell showing how to do it with a 9.20m throw.
