Victorian Championships 2018 - 2019


The Victorian Championships are being held as a combined Senior and Junior event over two weekends.  March 1 - 3 and March 8 - 10.  Looks to be a good programming idea from Athletics Victoria as our younger athletes get to see the top seniors in action.

Ringwood have had a very successful start to the Championships with 11 Gold medals, 4 Silver and 7 Bronze.  Tayleb Willis continued his outstanding Triple Jump form taking the U16 and U18 Club Record.

Danielle Shaw and Nicholas Dyson took Senior Gold in the 100m Hurldes and Discus respectively.  Ethan Lamb couldn't get closer to medals in the 100m if he tried, last year coming fourth by 0.05 and this year by 0.07 and fourth in the 110m hurdles by 0.27.

Peter Costanzo probably had the biggest winning margin in his U14 400m, winning by a good 20m.

Weekend two saw more fantastic results from the Club.  Conditions were a bit windy but fine overall.

By the numbers we contested 60 finals, won 19 Gold, 8 Silver, 11 Bronze and broke 7 Club Records.  We also had 9 fourth placed athletes and some were soooo close, keep working and the wheel will turn.

Our new Club Record holders are:
Tayleb Willis - U16 & U18 Triple Jump
Ethan Harris - U16 400m and 400m Hurdles
Nathan Philactides - U16 200m Hurdles
Dahami Liyanage - U14 Triple Jump & Long Jump

Shield Final for 2018-2019


The Athletics Victoria Shield Final was held in warm to hot conditions at Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park.  The Club had 5 out of 10 teams competing with some great performances by our athletes.  It would be nice to see this event actually have the graded and age group teams compete head to head, but that is just my view.

Our team results were:
Women 40+ 5th of 8
Women U16 10th of 11
Women U14 8th of 9
Men U18 8th of 11
Men U14 7th of 11

 

A couple of notable performances were by Luke Carroll in the U18 Pole Vault jumping 3.40 and Thomas Dellow in the U14 1500m running 4:45.1

High Velocity Club at Ringwood


On a perfect day for sprints and jumps with a slight perfect tail wind the High Velocity Club came to Ringwood.  The best results of the day went to Tayleb Willis who broke David Culberts long standing U16 Triple Jump Record with a 13.63 jump, breaking the old record by 28cm.  Tayleb was also with 0.07 of the U16 200m record.

Also moving up the lists were Danielle Shaw going to third over 400m Hurdles.

The Tan Relays finished off the Winter Season in mostly good and cool conditions.  Shannon McDade was fastest of the women running her second fastest time.  Scott Benedict was our fastest in the Men, leading the U20 team to a fifth place finish overall on the day and for the season.

Thanks also to our timekeepers for the day.

World Junior Championships, Silver lining


Competeting with the Worlds Best at the World Junior Championships the Ringwood Athletic Club added to its long roster of Australian Representatives with Gary Haasbroek in the Decathlon and Lateisha Willis in the 100m Hurdles.

 

In what can be only described as outstanding performances Gary took out the Silver Medal alongside fellow Australian Ashley Moloney who won the Gold.  Gary created a new PB for himself and broke his own Under 20 Club Record with 7798 points.  The Decathlon is not only the mastery of ten events it is the Track and Field Marathon where you have to get everything right over those two days.  You really can't afford to get anything wrong.  Throw in the fact that you probably only get one shot at these age group events and it multiplies the difficulty.

 

Lateisha Willis had to wait until Day 4 of competition to do her stuff over the 100m Hurdles and then for good measure she was the last of 6 heats in the outside lane.  Lateisha raced very well to finish 3rd in 13.92 as an automatic qualifier for the Semis.  Running in the Semi, which was her goal for the meet she ran a similar time of 13.93 and missed the final.

 

Fantastic efforts all round and a special shout out to Peter Benifer, hurldes coach par excellence.

Sandown Road Relays, R5 XCR 2018


On what was a typical Sandown day we had a very cold southerly wind with the rain hovering in the background.  Thankfully the rain held off.  Athletics Vctoria made an early weather call and shortened this years event to be one lap of 3.1 km for all the grades and ages. Normally the Seniors would run two laps.  In hindsight the weather held and they could have gone ahead as normal, but I didn't hear too many complaints about the shorter race.

We can now add a one lap time for the Seniors to the Sandown All Time Lists.

The senior women where led off by Shannon McDade in 11:19 for our fastest womens time of the day.  Scott Benedict was our fastest in the U20 men with 10:26 and just outside his PB.  Ruby Crisp who ran second for the U20 women had the fastest time for the junior girls and was also second fastest overall for our ladies.

Thanks to our timekeeprs for braving the elements, it is greatly appreciated.

Cruden Farm Cross Country, XCR 2018-2019


On a clear cool day we ventured down to Cruden Farm, which is quite a good course with a few middy sections, hills and fast hard sections.  You also need to watch out for cow pats.

The U20 mens finished fourth within the teams race.
