1 Ringwood Wrap on Tue Jan 18, 2011 1:18 pm


Ringwood Gift 16th January 2011
The Victorian Athletic League conducted its annual event at Proclamation Park
Ringwood thanks to the tireless efforts of event organiser Brian Morgan.
Competitors came from far and wide and were greeted by magnificent blue sky's
and still conditions.
800m Women's Final
More renowned for her sprinting prowess, Stephanie Mollica stepped up in
distance and toyed with her rivals in the women's 800m final. The Mark Hipworth
trained Mollica showed promises of bigger things to come in the middle distance
events and looks to be a good chance to claim bigger scalps as the season hot’s
up. Kathryn Heagney tried hard to hang on to second spot with Carmen Deanne
claiming third position
1600m Open Final
The Bendigo bolter Greg Hilson made a decisive surge a long way from home in
the 1600m open and won convincingly from the in form Barry Tossol and Mark
Hipworth who is enjoying his best season for some time. Hilson has had an
outstanding season to date and has staked an early claim for the veteran of the
year title, with Hipworth hot on his heels. Luke Searle stormed home from a long
way back to claim fifth spot and looks one to watch at the business end of the
1600m Novice Final
Zac Newman saluted the judge for his first VAL victory and looks to be a distance
runner of the future. Andrew Thomas rattled home for second and looks to be a
good chance of breaking his novice status very shortly with Brendan Canty
finishing third.
70m Open Final
The Nick Fiedler trained Alice Platten backed up her excellent form with yet
another victory on her home track in the 70m open. Platten showed her class
and versatility to claim first prize with Mathew Mifsud and Darren Rowland filling
in 2nd and third place respectively.

70m Novice Final
The Mark Howard trained Tommy Toskas sizzled down the track to score a
decisive victory in the 70m novice from Dale Lyons and Travis Pike.
100m Open Final
Proving that his 70m novice win was no fluke, Tommy Toskas dug deep to tip out
Cam Dunbar and last years winner Matthew Callard in the 100m open. The much
improved Toskas got off to a flying start and held on to claim his second win for
the day from his handicap of 9.5m. Coach Mark Howard was heard muttering
“it’s about bloody time” and looked to be a very relieved man.
300m Veterans Final
The Terry McGarity trained Noel Maghamez streeted this rivals in the 300m
veterans final winning convincingly from Shane Ezard and Steven Hurl. Whilst
the winner was too good, Shane Ezard ran home strongly from his tough mark of
3m with the honest Stephen Hurl running yet another placing for third.
400m Gift Final
The 400m gift final was once again a high quality field which was led off by the
inform Laura Jane Hilditch getting a flyer from her front mark of 78m. Hot on her
heels was Tabitha West who pressed forward with a scorching start to hit the lead
150m from home. Back in the field Cameron Yorke made a decisive move early
and loomed ominously rounding the bend and looked to be Wests main danger.
As the runners hit the straight it was West who dug deep to hold off the fast
finishing Andrew Boudrie and Matt Grant running a mighty third. The win by
West in 46.3 seconds off 48m is one of the most impressive runs seen by a
female in an open event since Cathy Freeman won her second Stawell 400m in
the mid nineties. Andrew Boudrie is one to watch in the Black Opal with Matt
Grant, Cam Yorke and Robbie Keenan ones to keep an eye on as the season hots
Our next event is the Wangaratta Gift on Saturday 22nd January 2011.
