UTS Norths athletes do well in the Hunter Track Classic Saturday 28 January
February 01 2017
A total of 21 UTS Norths athletes competed in the Hunter Track Classic in Newcastle. The highlights were great PB performances in the men’s and women’s 400 metres by Matt Wood and Ali Bartholomew respectively.
Matt won an exciting 400 metres in a PB time of 48.82. It was such a close finish as the first 4 were within .18 seconds of each other. Sean Fitzsimmons finished a close 3rd in 48.99. Ali Bartholomew ran a fantastic 2nd in her 400 metres behind Olympian Morgan Mitchell running a PB of 54.60. Olivia Cason ran a good 6th in 55.91. Ali Bartholomew graduated at Macquarie University in 2015 and went to USA for 5 months in the latter half of 2015 on an exchange program. She returned in January 2016 but took a break from competition under her new coach Ben Liddy to concentrate on building up her strength and stamina. She returned to racing in December before running her PB in Newcastle. She was delighted with her run and is looking forward to the big championships coming up in Sydney. She plans on running in the ACT and NSW Championships and would love to improve her PB time to go under 54 seconds.
Reigning state champion Mason Cohen ran an excellent 2nd place in the 800 metres behind Olympian Alex Rowe in 1:48.01, not far outside his best time. In the B race, Jye Perrott won in a swift time of 1:51.98 ahead of Fraser Garland-Barnes in 5th place in 1:55.32. Adrian Plummer ran close to a PB (3:44.78) in the 1,500 metres to run 6th against tough competition. Jake Ring ran 8th in the B race in 3:56.41.
Elijah Williams ran an excellent time of 11.12 in the 100 metres into a 2.0 headwind. He ran 5th in the A race ahead of other club members Will Lloyd (11.14), Anthony Collum (11.15), Ashley McMahon (11.21) and Jack Edwards (11.30).
Bella O’Grady had a great meet by winning the 200 metres in 24.20 which was an excellent time into a 2.5m headwind. She also ran 3rd in the 100 metres hurdles in 14.05. As reported on the ANSW website – “I was a little disappointed with my hurdles, but I’ve only just started going over them. I’m really lucky to train with Abbie (second in the hurdles). I’ll aim to do some more 200s – I love this event.”
Kristie Edwards (3rd in 24.80), Karlie Morton (7th in 25.39) and Min Jenkins (26.41) also ran well in the 200 metres.
