Vic's surprise award as Ipswich dominates

By David Lems
Queensland Times
26th Nov 2017

Super coach Vic Pascoe and his wife Dianne at the recent City of Ipswich Sports awards function.

HAVING gained immense satisfaction watching his latest group of club athletes excel, Vic Pascoe was content to leave Noosa a happy coach.

However, that was not before he received a prestigious accolade of his own.

The Ipswich and District Athletic Club supremo was acknowledged at the latest Noosa Gift carnival for his consistently high standard coaching.

Pascoe was presented with a Queensland Athletic League Certificate of Outstanding Performance for the most wins and placegetters among his "stable'' of club athletes involved in professional races.

The special commendation was for his efforts over the past 12 months.

"It was the biggest surprise of my life,'' Pascoe said of the honour, decided by the Australian Athletic Confederation.

QAL president and race caller Bruce Duncan made the presentation.

Noosa Gift event co-ordinator Ian Smith said it was fitting Pascoe was honoured at this year's event. "Yesterday was probably one of his most successful days so it came as a good day for the award to be given to him,'' Smith said.

TERRIFIC TRIO: Ipswich and District Athletic Club trio (from left) Patrick McCarthey,
Larissa Chambers and Benjamin Thomas won their events at the weekend Noosa Gift competition.

However, Pascoe was quick to deflect attention back to his athletes, including the Noosa Gift's youngest winner Benjamin Thomas.

The 15-year-old St Edmund's College student surprised himself by beating Jarrod Whittaker and another Ipswich club runner Patrick McCarthy.

Ipswich-based athletes won three of the four major Noosa events.

In addition to Thomas' great run, McCarthy won the 70m dash and Larissa Chambers took out the 110m ladies invitational.

All six Ipswich club athletes made finals.

Hayley Wright came fourth behind Chambers.

Alex Davies and Erin Wright competed in Little A's invitational events (U/9 to U/17) where medals and cash prizes were given out.
