Hi folks, here’s a comprehensive summary of the Mingara Club’s simply AWESOME results so far in Season 2017/18. It covers State Relays, Club C’ships and Treloar Shield (SEE BELOW), 3 of the 4 team events upon which the club concentrates. Our results have been truly remarkable for a small non-Metro based club, despite our proximity to Sydney. Yes, we basically have outperformed, overall, all other Country-based clubs, which is due to our proximity though, it has to be stated and stated quite clearly, both Wollongong Clubs are no further away from the Sydney venues than is Mingara and we leave them far, far, FAR behind. Our collective, and individual, results are testament to the ability, talent, determination, commitment and club loyalty displayed by so many of our Junior, Open and Masters athletes, their parents and supporters.

Treloar Shield Juniors

Now, for the BIG one, the NSW Country C’ships. With only 2.5 days in which to enter, we currently have some 50 athletes willing to give up part, or all, of their Australia Day w’end to compete for their club. This is fantastic news and gives us a more than even chance of retaining the Hooper Cup, which is awarded to the points score winner of these c’ships. We’ve won it for the past 3 consecutive years and I firmly believe we’ll retain it again for the 4th time this year in Wollongong. At the time of writing, we have athletes available to fill all 6 relay teams, the U16, Open and Masters 4x100m in both Men’s and Women’s, which is, once again, an enormous achievement. Naturally, being greedy but also wishing to see as many athletes compete at this MAJOR C’ship, I’d love heaps more to enter over this coming w’end. Entries close at 9am Monday morning so, come on, all who haven’t entered yet, but are thinking about it. Enter, support your club, support your fellow athletes, this is THE major Team-based Club competition of the year and is rated as highly at ANSW as any other competition.

The following lists are quite comprehensive so, bear with me as you read through them. They paint a simple, straightforward picture of how well Mingara is doing in comparison to the much larger and better funded Metro clubs.

Just by way of explanation and, unfortunately this is quite complicated and no-one, apart from those at ANSW who use it, completely understand the ‘why’ and the ‘how’, at the end of each round of the Treloar Shield, once the points are tallied, the club with the highest number on the day is allocated a ranking of 1. The 2nd highest pointscoring club is allocated 2, the third highest is 3, and so on until the lowest score. At the end of the season, regardless of how many points the club tallied, it’s the weekly rankings that determine the Overall standings. Therefore, you will notice the 3rd and 4th clubs, in the Overall standings, both scored more points than the 2nd placed club, however, on the weekly totals, Syd Uni achieved, by virtue of the ridiculously unfair x4 weighting allocated to points scored in Open events, higher rankings thus they finished 2nd overall.

What is blindingly evident, however, is that Mingara is one of the few clubs to have athletes competing in ALL 3 areas, Juniors, Opens and Masters, an achievement of which we can all be extremely proud.

Cheers and looking forward to Mingara SMASHING everyone at the Country C’ships over the Australia Day long w’end.

Hi folks, whilst a few of us were at SOPAC for Treloar last Saturday, a few hardy individuals travelled to Dubbo for the 41st edition of their New Year's Carnival. With temperatures soaring into the low 40s, Dubbo had their sprinklers out, plenty of shade awnings and lots and lots of water available. Thankfully, apart from January Jones getting a dash of sunburn with her incredibly fair skin, all appear to have survived!

Here's the results and I thank Dubbo Athletics for publishing results per athlete as well as per event. The amount of time saved is enormous!

January Jones W50+ 1st 100m 14.79, 1st 200m 30.46, 1st 400m 1:22.63, 2nd Long Jump 3.54m, 2nd Shot Put 6.99m, 2nd Javelin 14.02m

Ryan Vesper MU14 4th 200m 32.73, 2nd 400m 1:20.97, 1st 800m 2:57.13, 1st 1500m 5:54.45, 2nd 80m Hurdles 17.78, 3rd Long Jump 3.77m, 3rd Triple Jump 8.41m, 3rd High Jump 1.15m, 2nd 1kg Discus 20.59m, 4th 500g Javelin 15.28m

Congratulations to both January and Ryan for their brilliant efforts.


Hi folks, here’s the final report for this season’s Treloar Shield. We were fairly well represented across the 3 age Pennants and there were some outstanding results from many of our athletes. As I reported late in December, we were going very well in all 3 Pennants. Our Juniors (12-19yrs )were placed 10th out of 51 clubs and were far and away the leading Country-based club. Our Opens were our only ‘weak’ link for the simple reason we have so few athletes competing in this age group (20-29). They were placed 19th out of 33 clubs and third Country behind Illawarra Blue Stars and Macquarie Hunter. Masters, for those aged 30 and above, were comfortably placed in 2nd behind only UTS Norths, the largest and most well-funded club in the state. We were the leading Country Club by a long way. The updated Pennants tally wasn’t available when I wrote this report and I’ll post it as soon as I can. Suffice to say, on a preliminary count, I suspect neither the Juniors nor the Opens moved upwards or downwards, whilst I’m confident our Masters had a large enough points buffer to stay ahead of 3rd placed Asics Wests.

Congratulations to both Riley Grant and Gav Murray for their new Club records!!

Here’s the results and thankfully ANSW has published the ages so I can bring you the correct age result not just the overall place!

Ben Denham MU20 4th 100m 11.54, 4th 200m 23.22

*Club Records

Hi folks, last one for today I promise, well I hope so anyway!! Our final, and most important Club competition, is the weekend after next.

The ANSW Country C'ships are being held in Wollongong, commencing Friday Jan 26th Australia Day, and concluding Sunday Jan 28th. So far, our entrant numbers are quite good but we need EVERYONE who is a registered club member to enter!!! I know it's a holiday w'end, and the end of the school holidays, however, those two relatively minor impediments aside (hahaha!!!), come to the Gong for a w'end of tremendous athletics!

Mingara has won the Hooper Cup for the past 3 consecutive years and it doesn't belong anywhere else! We're the best non-Metro club in the entire State and, retaining this incredibly prestigious trophy should be our main aim for the season. State Relays, Club Champs, Road Relays, Treloar Shield, all pale into comparison to the Country C'ship.

Wollongong's a terrific place to visit and it's only for a weekend. Enter as many events as you can, step outside your comfort zone, after all, the more events you enter, the more points gained by the club!

Cheers and I hope to see our entrant numbers EXPLODE in the next week and a half. Entries close next Monday Jan 22nd at 9am, so that only gives you 11 full days. Please don’t wait until the last minute, get your entries in now, book your accommodation and help retain the Hooper Cup!!

*Club Records

PS ANSW didn't post the ages of the competitors with these results so I was unable to give results in correct age groups, thus the MOpen and WOpen with results. In a couple of cases, mine included, I knew the ages so those results reflect the place in the correct age. I suspect we Masters may have caught and passed Asics after this Treloar as we appeared to have many more competitors than they did.

Treloar attendance Summary Season 2017/18.

Hi folks, I just had a quick look at my Treloar posts and last w'end was far and away the most competitors we've had at any of the other 5 meets this year. The only one to come close, and it had barely 50% of the numbers, was Treloar 1 with 16. Treloar 2 had 13, Treloar 3 had 11, Treloar 4 had 8 and Treloar 5 had 6.

A BRILLIANT effort so close to Christmas and everyone is to be congratulated for ensuring the best and most colorful club singlet was seen flying high all Saturday!!


Hi folks, here’s the Club Champs report, a day or two late, but, here it is. I’ve stopped for the night in Lakes Entrance after a terrific, though wet, day’s drive through Wyndham Bombala, Cann River and Orbost.

There were many, many outstanding efforts over the two days of the competition, not the least of which was the fabulous commitment shown by the Cheney’s, Jason and Cameron. Their contributions, both this w’end, at State Relays, at RJT, at Treloar, are magnificent and they thoroughly deserve commendations from the entire club. Well done, dad and son Cheney. I also want to make special mention of the magnificent commitment and dedication shown by young Ryan Vesper over the w’end. Not to be outdone by his team mate in the same age, Cam Cheney, Ryan entered 9 events but pulled out of his last one, the 1500m, as his body simply said, “I quit!” Congratulations to you, Ryan, and to mum and dad who support you so wholeheartedly.

We’ve unearthed a trio of outstanding Juniors this w’end. Jye, and his younger brother Jason, Kovacs, and Taine Peterson. All three boys are in the U18s and performed superbly in their events as can be seen in the results. There were PBs aplenty from our LWL sprinters, Bess Chippendale in the 200m, Jacqui O’Neill in the 400m Hurdles, Ben Denham in his 200m; great runs, jumps and throws from Jason and Cam; Marianne Papalexion and her dad Nick; Paul Kelaher who almost pulled off a great win in his 800m having arrived after checkin and being allowed to run with no warmup; John Wall in his 200m, Ashley Pernecker and Hamish Hart winning their respective 3000m in the U14s, Jacqui O’Neill gong within a whisker of breaking the 1min barrier in her 400m;Jakob Madden almost breaking the MU18 2000m Steeplechase record only missing it by 2 secs; and many others. Throwers were also awesome with Tonia Brooks coming within 6cms of a national U23 qualifier in the U20 Discus, Gav Murray’s 3 from 3 taking out the Hammer, Shot and Discus in the M60+ and I pitched in with winning the Spear chuck (only because Gav was at a family do, thanks Gav, hahaha!!!).

What also turned out to be a great stroke of luck for us, but an unfortunate one for those concerned, Athletics Aust was forced to postpone the 20km and 50km C’ships set down for Melbourne this w’end which meant quite a few extra walkers competed for us. As is usual with frank and Lauren’s sensationally well-trained team, they won every race they entered, which is a simply awesome achievement!! Well done and congratulations Team Overton!!

Magic work, Team Mingara.

Here’s the list of results.

PS Again, if I’ve missed anything, or anybody, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
PPS When I get home, in a fortnight, I’ll have hopefully brought up-to-date the club records and will send them to the website noting the day they’re current. I plan on re-doing them each month so they should (touch wood) remain current.

Hi folks, here's the Mingara and Central Coast athletes results from last Saturday's Treloar Shield Rd 5. We had a reasonable representation of Masters athletes, but, no Opens and only 1 Junior which is a tad disappointing but perfectly understandable as the Zone Little As was full of our athletes throwing, jumping and running, setting new PBs, breaking records and generally having a terrific time!

Ernie Leseberg M45-59 1st 100m 11.56*, 1st 200m 23.17*
Jason Cheney M40-44 2nd 100m 12.52, 2nd 200m 25.36, 1st Javelin 29.88m, 1st 2kg Discus 27.93m, 1st LJ 4.74m
Cameron Cheney MU14 8th 100m 15.55, 6th 200m 31.40, 4th 600g Javelin 31.40m, 5th 1kg Discus 7.81m, 2nd LJ 3.85m
Gavin Murray M60-64 1st 600g Javelin 28.27m, 1st 1kg Discus 42.87m
Sally Hunt W50-54 2nd 800m 2:58.92
Geoff Crumpton 4th 100m 19.83(=PB!!), 2nd 600g Javelin 23.55m, 2nd 1kg Discus 27.56m

Vicki Townsend W 50-54 2nd80m Hurdles15.22, 2nd 100m 14.69, 2nd 200m 31.91, 1st HJ 1.30m, 1st 1kg Discus 30.20m, 2nd LJ 3.92m
Nicola McDermott WOpen 1st High Jump 1.88m (Team Horsnell)
Andrew Cassin M45-49 1st Long Jump 5.82m

I don't think we scored quite enough Masters points to reel in the 100pt deficit we had to Asics Wests as they appeared to have many more competitors than us, however, even discounting the 150+ pts Miss Vick would've scored for us, Ernie, Jason, Gav, Sally and myself all scored very highly. I'd suggest we're still comfortably ensconsed in Third in the Masters Treloar Pennant with 3 rounds to go.

A big congratulations to Sally for going under the 3min barrier in her 800m, to Ernie for his sensational wins in the M45-49 Sprint Double leaving his opposition trailing in his wake as he set two new club records, Jason for his outstanding efforts entering and securing podium finishes in all 5 events, Gav for 2 wins from 2 Throws, young Cam Cheney for 5 events in one afternoon and scoring points in all of them, and, finally only because Jason insisted, I congratulate myself for equalling my 100m PB set in March last year!!
