Guiney goes top 10

Guiney goes top 10

Despite losing several team members to colds and man flu, the APS United teams all performed strongly in the AV 10 km Road Championships at Albert Park. Sean Guiney was again the star, finishing 9th in a strong field, while Andrew Edwards won an individual M55 silver medal. Anna Kasapis ran strongly in the women’s race.

M40’s take gold at Sandown

M40’s take gold at Sandown

Ant Rickards, Andre Le Gerche (on debut) and Mark Frater dominated the M40+ competition in this year’s Sandown Relays, winning gold and putting the team back in the hunt for a premiership. In division 1, Sean Guiney blitzed the 6.2 km course, running 18:49.

Xavier wins it for St Kevin’s

Xavier wins it for St Kevin’s

St Kevin’s Xavier Chapman performed the rare feat of being the last runner to start in the 16k, but crossing the line first as the handicap winner. He also ran the fastest time in the event. And on the day of a post-race tribute to the late Keith Lodge, it was equally appropriate that Chloe Cornwell of St Kevin’s should win the 8k handicap, her first win in 26 years of competing.

OX’s Matt Clarke and OW’s Anna Kasapis were the fastest male and female runners at this year’s Hooley Relay, and they both led their teams to clear wins in the division 1 and women’s competitions. The fast improving Caulfield Grammarians won division 2 and now look a strong chance to be promoted to division 1 next season. Full results are behind the APSOC from 2013 tab.

APSU bounces back at Bundoora

APSU bounces back at Bundoora

With two runners in the top 10 (David Rooney and Sean Guiney), APS United premier men’s team performed strongly in the Victorian 10k Cross Country Championships at Bundoora Park to finish in 4th place. At the halfway point of the XCR season, APSU are high on the ladder in three divisions and set to go higher in the remaining events.

First win for Caulfield Grammarians

First win for Caulfield Grammarians

More than 100 runners competed in this year’s McPhail 8k, with Old Wesley’s Adam Pyke and Anna Kasapis recording clear victories in the men’s and women’s races. Julia Hall made history by becoming the first Caulfield Grammarians athlete to record a victory in an APSOC race with her sealed handicap win.

M40 team stays in touch

There were slim pickings at Ballarat as APS United’s top runners decided to bypass the event, but Ant Rickards was the first M40+ runner overall and he led his team into third place to keep it in the premiership race. Andrew Edwards finished second in the M55+ division.

Two new course records

Two new course records

Congrats to Adam Pyke (OW) and Alexandra Paterson (OX) who broke the men’s 5k and the women’s 10k records at this year’s Wise Mini Marathons. Adam became the first man under 15 minutes for the 5k, a brilliant effort on a hilly course. Link to the APSOC results for full details of the day’s racing.

Reality check for APSU

Reality check for APSU

It was tough going in the 16k cross country at another new AV venue – Cruden Park in Langwarrin. Andrew Edwards took second place in the M55 age group and our division 4 team placed well, but the premier and M40 teams did not fare so well. The division 4 team is on top of the ladder after three rounds.

OW and OX win again

OW and OX win again

Although not as dominant as at the Jamieson, Old Wesley still ran out comfortable winners of this year’s Dyson Relay, with their men recording five of the ten fastest individual times. Old Xaverians won the women’s race, while Sean Guiney (OH) and Sally Naylor (OW) had the fastest overall individual times. The race results are behind the “APSOC from 2013″ link.
