Rotary Athletics Track
JULY, 01 2017
UTS Norths is pleased to announce that the grass at Rotary Athletic Field has been laid. As we are now entering the cooler months of winter, it is expected the field will remain out of action until Spring to allow the roots to take hold and grass to grow. The fence surrounding the field will remain up to protect grass while it takes root. We will keep all club members updated on a monthly basis of the progress.

Matt won the silver in 23:57 and Jack won the bronze in 24:07. It was a busy weekend for Ed as he came 5th in a Gold Coast 10K race on the Saturday. The performance of the open men’s team augers well for the club’s chances in the NSW Road Relay Championships on 15th July.

Another State Title: UTS Norths Wins the Open Mens NSW Road Relays
JULY, 16 2017
The Open men’s teams continue their fantastic form by winning another state title at the NSW Road Relays Championships. This follows the winning trifecta by the Open team consisting of Ed Goddard, Matt Cox and Jack Stapleton who won the medals in the NSW Short Course XC Championships on 2nd July.
The team and their splits for the 4km legs are as follows:
Ed Goddard 11:42
Will Austin-Cray 11:52
Mason Cohen 12:10
Jack Stapleton 11:55
The Open team was led off by Ed Goddard who ran the fastest split and was running third when he handed over to Will Austin-Cray. Will ran a great leg to take over the lead. Mason Cohen maintained the lead in the 3rd leg. He handed over to Jack Stapleton who held his lead over Olympic marathoner Jeff Hunt to clinch the Gold for the UTS Norths team with a comfortable win.
Congratulations to the women’s U20 team consisting of Sarah McDermott (13:36), Nicola Bowtell (17:24), Eloise Doherty (15:47) and Izzy Thornton-Bott (14:51) who easily won the gold medal 3 minutes ahead of the Sutherland team. Sarah continued her excellent winter form after scoring a silver medal in the State Long Course XC Championships in June. Izzy also continued her terrific form after winning gold in the recent Oceania Championships in Fiji. Nicola showed her versatility running the 4km as she is more comfortable in her favourite sprint events.
Congratulations to the Open women’s team who won a bronze medal:
Elese Gallen 13:41
Eliza Barton 14:45
Bianca Grimaldi 15:41
Annabel McDermott 15:02
Elese ran very well with the fastest leg over the 4km journey. It was also great to see Annabel McDermott back into competition after a long period of ill health.

Deb Drennan 17:37
Margaret Thomas 19:56
Nancy Lloyd 25:24
