North-West Coast sprinters Jack Colgrave and Abby Chapman have shown some good early-season speed after winning their respective 100-metre finals at the Launceston Carnival on Saturday.

After scoring easy wins in his heat and semi-final, 16-year-old Colgrave, held on to claim the honours in a final laced with talent, winning in a time of 10.53 seconds from Launceston’s Patrick Chilvers and Hobart veteran Dan Lemoto.

It was a far tighter affair in the women’s final, with Chapman edging out local hop Kysha Hill by just 0.02 of a second to take the prize in the first meet of the Tasmanian Athletic League calendar.

Fellow North-West runner Morgan Gaffney was third.

Chapman backed up her success with a second placing in the women’s 200m final, which was won by Hobart’s Amy Pedder, while Burnie’s David McCrae started his season with third place in the men’s 200m final.

The next carnival will be at Richmond on Sunday.

Chapman won the 100-metre gift off a handicap mark of five metres beating home Launceston’s Kysha Hill (5m) and Burnie backmarker Morgan Gaffney off 3.7m.

It was Chapman’s second Launceston Gift title having previously won in 2008.

In the men’s gift final contested over 200m, Chilvers, a year 12 student coached by Wim Vaessen, ran from a mark of 11m and crossed the line in front of fellow frontmarkers Dan Le Moto (15m), of Hobart, and Burnie’s Dave McRae (16m).

The men’s gift field had some quality in it including former Latrobe Gift winner Ross Lovell, former Rosebery Gift winner Jarrod Gilroy and two-time former Launceston winner Luke Whitney.

Chilvers finished second behind talented Burnie Marist College student Jack Colgrave in the men’s 100m final with Chilvers running off 5.25m and Colgrave 5m with Le Moto third off 7.5m.

The women’s 200m final was won by frontmarker Amy Pedder off a mark of 15m, with Chapman finishing second off 10m and Hill third.

The open 600m final went to Launceston’s Courtney Stanley off a mark of 80m from Hobart’s Sandy Loring off 85m and Corey Stanley off 45m.

Corey Stanley also took out the mile race just catching Hannah Cummins on the line. Stanley won off 150m with Cummins off 285m and Matthew Zegveld third off 180m.

Jerome Whiteley was successful in claiming the 300m masters final from Mark Nichols and Ryan O’Halloran while the maiden final went to Oscar Desmond from Adam French.
