Fearnley Dawes Newcastle

Hi folks, as I've finally warmed up from Cross Country today held at a freezing Long Jetty, and the rugby doesn't start til 5.30pm when the All Blacks take on France, and the results are up from last night, here they are. 

The conditions at Fearnley Dawes in Newcastle last night were horrid, bitterly cold with a very, strong wind. Young Bryson Norris, though, managed a PB in his 1500m which was a sensational performance given the headwind on the front straight.

Sally Hunt W 55-59 1st 1500m 6:04.53Vicki Townsend W50-54 1st Shot Put 10.86m, 1st Triple Jump 8.08m, 1st Javelin 18.64m, 1st High Jump 1.30m, 1st 100m 16.41 Stella Norris WU14 1st Shot Put 5.22m, 1st 400m 1:14.10, 1st Javelin 13.62m

Bryson Norris MU10 2nd 1500m 5:59.69, 4th Shot Put 4.74m, 3rd 400m 1:29.53, 2nd javelin 10.35m, 3rd High Jump 0.90m, 5th 100m 19.98Geoff Crumpton M60-64 1st Shot Put 8.70m (a PW!!!!), 1st Javelin 22.13m (another PW!!)


PS The next meet is on Friday July 20th commencing at 6pm. The events are; 800m, 60m, 200m, 3000m, javelin, discus, long jump, triple jump. Hope to see more Mingara athletes there.

Congratulations to Frank and Lauren, the Team Overton coaches, to the athletes who competed, and to their parents and supporters who made the trek to what appeared to be a cold, though sunny Canberra day. Hopefully I haven't missed anyone's time, or result, and please inform me asap if I have, and apologies if I have done so.
