Mingara Athletics Club

New Members Welcome...

State Masters report held the w'end of Feb 8, 9 and 10 2019

Hi folks, the fourth major Masters event for Mingara athletes, was held on the w’end of Feb 8, 9 and 10. The State Masters C’ships and the mighty green and blue M was, once again, very prominent. Our smallish group of competitors featured in all the main events, from the sprinters, to the long- and middle-distance runners, to the throwers and jumpers. There were quite a few absolutely outstanding performances however, for me, the highlight was watching Super Sally HuntSuper Sally Hunt’s amazingly gutsy, ‘never-say-die’ finish to her 800m where, with 60m to go, she was overtaken but, to the delight of her fanatically, screaming fans she dug into places only true competitors have, and wrested back the lead to hang on for the age group win! To make it even more meritorious, the lass who’d overtaken Sally was in a different age group so, in reality, Sally didn’t need to even chase her as she was going to win her own age group anyway but, that’s not Sally and she wanted to win!!

I know he’ll be extremely embarrassed by this, however, a very, prominent member of NSW athletics approached me on Sunday afternoon, at the Masters C’ships, and made special mention of Ernie Leseberg, calling him, ‘the most under-rated and under-valued performer in NSW’, and I can’t say I disagree with his sentiments. Ernie won all 4 sprint events in his age group at the C’ships, a feat only rarely achieved, or even attempted. The 60m, 100m, 200m and 400m in the highly competitive M45-49yrs age group, and with a returning Olympian in his age group!! It takes an extremely dedicated, strong, fit, maybe ‘crazy’ individual to undertake such an onerous task, yet Ernie does it without fanfare, without much ado, without seeking recognition, he does it for the sheer enjoyment of being able to run fast (though his facial expressions certainly displayed not much enjoyment for the last 60m of his 400m, hahaha!!!). Go Ernie, champion athlete, champion person, champion dad and husband!

A special shoutout to several of our, ‘unsung heroes’, Bev Durston, Julie Peksis, Paul Kelaher and Mark Byfield, to name just a few. These 4 athletes are always there to help out, always volunteer at relays when we’re short runners or throwers to field a team, always give 100% in every event they attempt, however rarely end up on the podium so we tend to overlook their superb contributions to the club as a whole. They’re always incredibly supportive of their fellow club members, and, in reality, epitomise the credo of Masters athletics, “get in and have a GO!’ My personal THANK YOU to Bev, Julie, Paul and Mark.

A big thank you also, to our fantastic team mascot, Billie Maree, Ange Jones’ 2.5yr old daughter, who looked absolutely resplendent in her Mingara uniform! Cries of, ‘Go Mum’ could be heard all Sunday and having her present seems to give all of us a real lift. Thank you Billie and mum!!

Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention the indefatigable Ken ‘Mo’ Stubbs who, just like an Eveready battery, just keeps going and going and going some more! To go with his superman performance at NSW Country competing in the awful heat in 13 separate events, he equalled that at this comp in Sydney. ‘Mo’ came away with 2 Gold, 5 Silvers and 2 Bronze medals, as well as Top 6 finishes in the remaining events! We all salutes ya, ‘Mo’!!

Here’s the results from 3 days of fun, of companionship, of camaraderie, and of truly great competition. There’s no awards or pointscores attached to this competition, however, I suspect Mingara would’ve rated very highly on an overall scale.

ANSW Country C'ships - NSW Country Report

ANSW Country C'ships - Day`s 1, 2, 3 & 4.

Day 1.

Hi folks, here’s the ANSW Country C’ships report. Before I begin, a huge bunch of praise must be given to Cheryl Ann and Greg Rowe, not only for their unabashed and unlimited love for the club and its people, but for their unflagging spirit, their amazing generosity and their team spirit. I’ve never known two people so willing to ‘go the extra mile’ to ensure everyone they are associated with at this wonderful athletics club Mingara, be it parent, athlete, supporter or sibling, achieves their own goals. I personally cannot thank either of them enough and am even actually willing to give Greg the benefit of the doubt for being a Wests Tigers supporter, hahaha!!!

Now to the real athletics! What a superb team represented their club over 4 of the toughest days of competition I’ve been involved in for years. Even baking in the outfield at cricket had nothing on what we all experienced especially over the w’end. Saturday’s temperatures reached 46 degrees, which is a ridiculously high temperature in anyone’s language. Thankfully, the area in which Greg and Cheryl Ann pitched the tent did provide all of us with shade for the majority of the day which helped enormously.

The entire team performed superbly. From our littlest and youngest competitor Bryson Norris right the way through to the grand ‘old man’ of the team Ken Mo Stubbs, everyone gave their utmost to ensure Mingara had the best, possible chance of retaining the Hooper Cup, for the 5th year in a row! Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the points tally hadn’t been compiled so we don’t know yet if our lofty ambitions have been achieved. Whilst I can’t single out any one person for their performances, suffice to say, the amount of podium finishes achieved by the entire team will be hard to surpass in the coming years.

Special mention must go to Frank Overton and Lauren Richardson for the incredible results from their Racewalkers. All told there were 14 Walks events and their team placed in 10 of them with 9 Gold, 4 Silvers and a Bronze!!!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the LWL coaches and their squad, the mighty Tominators, Team Momentum and their throwers, and Margaret and Robert Beardslee’s middle- and long-distance runners, for their superb effors.

The actual results speak for themselves as you can now read. These results are Day 1 only.

ANSW Club Championships Report

ANSW Club Championships Report

The NSW Club C’ships were held on Saturday Dec 15th with a completely, new and untried teams format which, in my opinion, worked extremely well. Sure, there were glitches and snafus but, on the whole, 22 clubs entering in excess of 100 teams only 3 weeks after the NSW State Relays competition is testament to the success of this innovative approach. It was extremely disappointing the weather intervened to cause quite a number of competitors to miss out on their events, however, not much else could’ve been done with the severity of the actual storms. There are changes that will need be made to the format, especially around the timetabling, though those decisions are for the future. In short, and in my opinion, this ‘new’ Club C’ship format is a terrific addition to the ANSW calendar and should be supported by all clubs and athletes.
