Good to see a couple of 'old' boys with a win. Ireland and Matthews have done a lot for the sport and I believe are both well respected. Good runs by both! Gives an old broken down runner a hope of a win.

Terang Gift 28th November 2010
The Victorian Athletic League running ventured out to Terang this weekend.
Conditions were mild and windy but we had a very good turnout of athletes to
compete. The Terang committee should be commended for their enthusiasm and
for a great day out.
The summary of each event is listed below.
70m Open
The 70m Open event was taken out by the self trained Todd Ireland. This was
Todd's first win over the 70m for many years and it was a well deserved victory.
Todd ran off 7.5m and recorded a winning time of 7.69. Finishing a close up
second was the much improved Benny Tancredi trained runner Matthew Mifsud, a
win is not far away for Matthew. The Marcus Cooper trained, Lachlan Dalgleish,
who actually won the footballers gift at Stawell last year finished in third position.
He looks to be a promising runner in the making and should break his novice
status over the coming weeks.
120m Women's/Veterans
The 120m Women's/Veterans event was won in very impressive fashion by the
Todd Ireland trained, George Saouma. Running off 14.25, George got a fantastic
start and gave no one else a chance when he sprinted clear with 40m to go.
Running on gallantly from his backmark of 4m was Marcus Cooper who grabbed
second from Brendan Boyle. The winning time was 13.20.
120m Gift
The 120m Gift saw a great win to the 1999 Stawell Gift winner Rod Mathews. Half
way down the straight it looked as though Lachlan Dalgleish was going to take
the prize but Rod came home hard to claim the win in a time of 12.57. It was a
very good run from Lachlan Dalgleish to finish in second position after his great
run in the 70m final. Rounding out the top three was the Rob Lehmann trained,
Simon Menz.
300m Women's/Veterans
The 300m Women's/Veterans was a rough affair. There was some interference
occurring on the home turn, which impacted on a couple of runners being
checked, however, it was dealt with by the stewards. The race was won by the
Trevor Beaton trained, Mark Hearsh. Mark ran off 32m and won in a time of
37.54. Close up second was the frontmarker of the event Terry Arundell. Filling in
third was the hard luck story of the race Patricia Fox, look out for her in the
coming weeks.

400m Open
The 400m Open was won in very impressive fashion by the Rob Lehmann trained,
Nathan Fox. Nathan ran off 24m, as the runners approached the home turn
Nathan made his move and swooped past the field to record a strong win in
49.49 on a slow track. Running home gamely into second place was Dominic
Hoskins and also battling on well for third was Alan Dinsdale who looked the
winner approaching the home turn.
800m Open
The 800m Open final had a bit of class to it and provided a great finish with four
runners making a dive for the finish line. As the runners approached the home
turn it was Mark Andrews who hit the lead from Tom Hecimovic who was trying to
raise another challenge, half way down the straight Andrews looked set for
victory before the Mark Hipworth trained, Adam Coote, running off his 20m
handicap charged through a narrow gap to prevail on the line. Andrews was game
in defeat running second and Tom Hecimovic ran an improved race to finish just
behind the first two placegetters. Dominic Hoskins, who has made the move to
distance running ran a great race to finish close up in forth position.
1600m Open
The 1600m Open was low on starters but still provided a good finish. Ashley
Snowden who has been in good form of late hit the lead with about 250m to
travel, but after his narrow defeat in the 800m, the Les Williams trained, Mark
Andrews tracked up Ashley and bounded clear half way up the straight to record
a very impressive victory off his 120m handicap. Another good run from runners
Brendan Liddicoat and David Page who ran third and forth respectively.
The winning time for the event was 4.27.
