St Andrews Cricket Club Wrap

St Andrew’s Cricket club conducted their first Victorian Athletic
League carnival on the weekend and provided an excellent track,
ideal amenities and plenty of vocal local spectators. The weather
was warm and sunny but athletes were forced to endure a
punishing head wind up the gift track and down the back straight
for the circle events.

RACV 120 metres under 20’s
Jack Lewis (8.0m), at his first start over the gift distance raced
away to record an easy win from Ellie Maguire (22.75m) and Kate
Jones (20m) in Sunday’s division of the RACV handicap. Jack races
with a very upright style but had no trouble gathering the front
markers and cruised to the finish line in the time of 13.11.In his
few runs with the VAL Jack has shown all round ability with some
encouraging runs in races up to 800 metres.
Lewis is trained by Doug Armstrong, who is building a very strong
stable of young athletes.

St Andrew’s Cricket Club 70 metres Open
On Sunday Augustine Carty-Cowling (5.5m) made his seventh 70
metres final for the season and recorded his second win. In the final
he ran through the field with authority and defeated Cam Dunbar
(4.5m) by a half a metre with Chris Hargreaves (5.5m) in third
place. Augustine had previously scored in the Northcote 70 metres
novice before Christmas but has been extremely consistent in these
events since.
Carty–Cowling is trained on the track by Terry McGarity who was
also the clubs commentator for the day.

Mick Bouchard 120 metres Women's Open
As Megan McMahon crossed the finish line in her heat those present
soon realised that she was racing in front of her home town crowd
with a round of thunderous applause. In the final she handled the
added pressure with ease by racing to the lead early and holding off
Kim McDonough (13.5m) and Laura-Jane Hilditch (7.25). Megan has
raced consistently this season and has been narrowly beaten
recently at both Keilor and Noble Park.
McMahon is trained by Terry McGarity and has been competing with
the VAL for five seasons. Sunday’s victory brings her career tally of
wins to five.

400 metres Novice Handicap
After six years of competing and countless finals Jay Blake (49m)
finally broke his novice status with a hard fought victory in the 400
metres novice final at Braybrook on Sunday. Jay settled in third
place early in the final and powered to the lead at the 150 metres
mark to enter the straight with a handy break. First Rilyn Mosbey
(35m) and then Uchitha Wijesekara (44m) offered serious
challenges but were unable to wear Blake down. Jay is trained by
Benny Tancredi and recorded the winning time of 50.48.

Swazza Transport 300 metres women's/Veterans
The Rob Furness trained Shane Buckingham (21m) continued on
with his winning form when he took out the 300 metres
women's/vets final at Braybrook in the time of 37.2. Dennis Hughes
(57m) forced a fast tempo early in the event and set the race up for
the backmarkers finish on strongly. Shane came with a sweeping
run to run past Laura-Jane Hilditch (46m) and Chris Roche (19m).
Last week at Noble Park Shane also won the women's /vets final,
making it five VAL wins in his six seasons of competition.

Matty Pipczak Painting and Decorating 400 metres Open
Dominic Hoskins (24m) completed a treble for the McGarity Stable
when he raced to the lead on the home turn and held on strongly to
defeat his stablemate Josh Mather (21m) and Robert Keenan
(30m). The winning time was 49.17. Dominic has had a consistent
season having made many finals, including a win in the 800 metres
at Woodside earlier in the season.

Summerhill Drafting service 1600 metres
Rebecca Cato (345m) captured her first open victory with a
runaway win in the 1600 metres in the time of 4.14.14. Rebecca
charged to the lead before the bell and was never in danger as she
scored a clear win from Leon brooks (275m) and Sean Quilty
(140m). Early in the season, Rebecca also had a win at Daylesford
in the VCCL novice, which qualified her for the Novice final at
Stawell. On yesterday’s win she would be an excellent chance at
Easter. Rebecca is trained by Wally Meecham, himself enjoying a
good season.

Mynt Lounge 120 metres Maribyrnong Gift
Matthew Boyes (18m) made it four wins for the season when he
held on to win the main event at Braybrook from Matthew Eddy
(9.75m) and Chris Diegan (8.75m) in the time of 12.7. Matthew,
trained by Wally Meecham, had previously won this season at Bay
Sheffield, Peninsula and Avondale Heights. His wins have been from
100 metres to 300 metres and in his current form should continue
to be competitive over most distances.

Bendigo Gift - Sunday 12th March 2011St.
