Rye Gift 8th January 2011
The Victorian Athletic League conducted its annual event at Rowley Reserve, Rye.
A clear blue sky day greeted the runners and the VAL running did heat up a notch
for this event. The rain stayed away until the last event was run and then it
absolutely pelted down, great timing by the club. Bob Martin and his committee
should be commended for once again putting on a great event for the athletes
and the local community.

70m Novice Final
The 70m Novice was won by the much improved John Henry trained, Chris
Hargreaves. Chris has been knocking on the door for a win and won the event in
very convincing fashion. I'm sure there will be many more victories for Chris in
the future. Second position was held down by Matthew Bertacco who ran in both
the Novice and Open 70m finals and third was Matthew Wiltshire.

70m Open Final
The 70m Final was a classy field and the result saw Alex Carew just hold on for
well deserved victory. Running off the tough mark of 3.5m Alex just held off the
fast finishing Simon Greig (2m), who has been in really good form in the sprints.
Matthew Bertacco again got a podium finish and a win will surely come in the
next few weeks.

120m Women's Final
The Rye Women's Diamond, which is one of the premier Women's events on the
VAL calendar was taken out by the Nick Fiedler trained, Alice Platten. Running off
8.25m Alice had to work hard to run down Laura Jane Hilditch who was the
winner of the rich Woodside Women's 120. Running a great race for third was
Samantha Sammut.

Sammut filled in third position.

300m Veterans Final
The Vets was taken out in fine fashion by the in-form Nathanael Coull. Running
off 7m he made it two from two over the distance just overcoming Noel
Maghamez who will win next start with the right run. Clayton Fraser and Les
Williams finished close up and are due for victories soon.

Mornington's Matt Carter won an early heat, but failed to
make the final
.

Raging favourite takes out the Rye Gift
by Simon McEvoy
Mornington Peninsula Leader
Athletics
10 Jan 11


CRAIG Rollinson ran like the wind to win the 37th Rye Gift final on Saturday.

Wearing the yellow jacket off 8.25m, 30-year-old Rollinson clocked 12.488 to win the 120m final. Second was Bros Kelly off 6.25m and third Daniel Sammut off 9.25m.

Rollinson, an electrician from Warragul, trains with Wally Meechan at Dandenong.

It was a landmark win for both.

“This is his first Gift win, and mine also,” Meechan said.

“We gave him a trial during the week and he went pretty well in it. I thought he’d be a chance and so did he.”

Rollinson was backed into a raging 1/2 odds on favourite in the final, but Meechan said it wasn’t his money.

“Someone got on before me, so I didn’t touch it,” Meechan quipped.

More than 3500 people filed into Rowley Reserve to witness the afternoon’s races.

The Women’s Diamond was won by Alice Platten off 8.25m. Second was Laura-Jane Hilditch and third was Sam Sammut.
