Pembroke Athletic Meet Review

Camden teenager Natassia Messent warmed up for the Stawell Easter Gift carnival with a stylish victory in the inaugural Pembroke 120m women's gift on Sunday at Kensington oval.

Beginning slowly off her 8.5m handicap, Messent 17, quickly recovered to haul in Coastals’ Lily Micklethwaite (10.5m) and Camden’s Niamh Henry (11m) in 14.29sec.

While the state 400m champion will run both the 120m and 400m at Stawell, it’s her pet distance where she believes she has her best chance.

“It’s my first visit to Stawell so I’m excited and keen to experience the atmosphere”, she said.
I don’t expect too much in the 120, but I think I can do well in the 400.”

In the men’s gift, John Evans (6m) won his seventh sash and his fourth 120m gift this season when he pipped Coastals’ Mitch Tucker (7.75m) and CTC’s Jake Jervis-Bardy (8m) on the line in 13.14sec.

In the first ever 300m All Comers’ event where athletes in all categories were pitted against each other in 9 heats, the under 18’s dominated, taking the first three placings in the A race.  Although challenged in the straight, Charlie Hildyard (71m) outlasted Zach Palmer (73m) and Max Underwood (60m) in 34.11secs.

Lachlan Grubb (24m) made it a double for the juniors when he took out the B race.

After running the fastest heat, Jesse Cordoma (6m) looked set to win his first open event, but broke down with a hamstring injury midrace in the novice 70m. It was ultimately taken out by Lily Micklethwaite (12.75m) from Luis Lawrie-Lattanzio (8.0m) and Thomas Steel (5.0m).

After winning a silver medal in the under 18 national decathlon title in Sydney on Thursday, Western District’s Lachlan Burrows scored his fourth sash this season, winning the 800m open. McKinnon Parade stablemates David Girolamo and Mark Beveridge finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.

SANFL umpire Lachlan Hennig completed the McKinnon Parade’s domination of the middle-distance events this season with victory in the 1600m. The Michael Buckler coached stable won eight of the nine 1600m open events on the SA Athletic League calendar. Victorian Daniel Lawlor’s triumph at the Bay Sheffield carnival denied the inner suburban squad a clean sweep of all SAAL metric miles.
