NSW state road relay championships Sat. July 13th 2013

NSW Road Relays
It was a mixed day for us. Eight teams competed and there were three team medals. A number of teams were under strength due to people being away for the school holidays, soccer and snowboarding injuries! What can you do??? 
Nerves at the 2K start line. Left to right we see Josh Phillips, Liam Gorman, Daniel Cooper and Hannah Gibson
The 2K start - how many Striders can you spot???

Corey Grace (top below) and Samuel Greenland both take on the girls in their 2K relay legs......


The under 12 boys A with Dan Cooper, Kieran Gorman, Jack Stockeld and Tom Kirkland were the stars of the day with their emphatic win in the 4x2k. This was especially welcome, after their very close second in Nowra.

Daniel Cooper ran 2K  twice: he ran in the 12 boys A and the 16 boys A! Go Daniel!!!
Our under 16 boys: Josh Phillips, Harlan Mulherin and Lachlan Cooper. The 4th was under 12 Daniel Cooper - so not our strongest under 16 boys team, but good enough for fourth!!
 In the under 18 boys 4x4k, David Gardiner opened with a 12.43 first leg. There were solid runs from Adam Halmy and Paul Loader. Daniel Francken made up 200m and brought the team home in third with a blistering 12.40.

In the last race of the day the under 20 girls’ team of Bethany Halmy, Hannah Gibson, Jess Vernon and Amelia Gorman won silver in their 4x4k after an almighty tussle with Ryde Athletic Club, the eventual winner.

A great picture of Amelia Gorman who ran for the under 18 girls and the under 20 girls.

Hannah Gibson hands over to Jess Vernon.

Tony Wong, who organized the teams and ran 4K in the open men's team himself on the day - doesn't he look happy?
