Team gold medals for U18 and M40+ at the Tan

Team gold medals for U18 and M40+ at the Tan

It was a stellar day for APSU in the final event of the season, the Tan Relays. Our M40+ team capped a superb season with another win and the season premiership. Led by Ant Rickards, twelve athletes contributed to the team’s success during the season. And in exciting news for the future, APSU won its first ever underage gold medal in the under 18 race.

Another A grade performance from Andy

Cooke-McClelland brings season to a close

Three teams have ended successful seasons by winning their respective divisions at Burke Hall to snare team premierships. Arguably the most significant of these was Caulfield Grammarians’ win in division 2, because it has earned them promotion to division 1 next season. OW also enjoyed individual success, with Lachie Aspinall winning the sealed handicap after finishing second to Adam Pyke in the main race.

Historic Caulfield Grammarians team win

Historic Caulfield Grammarians team win

APSOC’s newest member club has won its first team event, the Brighton-by-the-Sea 9 km. Led, appropriately, by Andrew Hall (2nd) and Sarah Somes (5th), Caulfield Grammarians won the event, which is decided by handicap placings rather than fastest times. Meanwhile, Adam Pyke (OW) and Julie Manning (OX) continued their standout seasons by recording the fastest times.

Ekiden Relay silver medal

Ekiden Relay silver medal

APS United’s M40+ team continued its fine AV season with a second placing in the Ekiden Relay at Anglesea. Available runners were a bit hard to find, so Anna Kasapis went beyond the call of duty to run in the men’s division 1 team. Results are behind the APS United result tabs.

For the second time this season, a runner has overtaken the entire field to record fastest time and a handicap win. This time it was Adam Pyke (OW) in the Berwick Hare & Hounds 8k, emulating the run of Xavier Chapman (SK) run in the Lodge 16k a few weeks ago. Adam had the fastest time by a lazy 3:40 and won the handicap by 2:57, both huge margins. Another noteworthy performance was Andrew Edwards …..Read more

At a new temporary venue for the Williamson 5k, Akoonah Park in Berwick, Old Wesley bounced back from their Hooley Relay loss to win in open division 1, while the Old Xaverians women returned the favour (albeit narrowly over Haileybury) by winning their division. Matt Clarke (OX) ran a super fast time in the soggy conditions of 15:29. Alex Paterson (OX) won the women’s race and David Nickels was first on handicap.

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.
