2017/18 AV Shield Final : Lakeside Stadium

Fantastic results from our Division 1 Teams.

How did Nuna win Women’s Open Division 1?

By Women’s Team Manager: Natalie

I just wanted to say a huge congratulations to everyone who competed in the Final! Ending up with a win in the Womens and 2nd place in the Mens was so unexpected, but just goes to show how important it is to fill all the events - every point counts!!

From the Womens perspective, I wanted to say a special thank you to the girls who turned up at 9am (or earlier) and stayed almost (or the whole) day doing extra events - we literally won because of every last effort in every event, so to do 4-5+ efforts at that is definitely something to tip our hats to! As far as I know we have never won Open Division 1, and its something to be extremely proud of!

Special mention to Jessica who ran a .6 sec sb in the 200m after 4 other events, and Nicole for stepping up to do a shot put when we had an injury - (also to noticing we had points missing!), and Carolyn for finalising the points and sprinting around after the day to make sure the announcers knew the change of winner! I also wanted to appreciate David Sommers, but he stayed right until the end to support us girls, and his positive attitude and encouragement went a long way to getting us through the relay as well!

Lastly, extra special mention to Adam - without him we wouldn’t have even got a team sorted for the day, let alone made it to our events/organised clashes/etc.

Adam’s report on the Finals:

Congratulations to all the women who participated on the day and helped Athletics Nunawading to win their first ever premier title for Victorian track and field club-based competitions (including when the men’s and women’s clubs were separate entities). In an exciting finish to the day it was only because of a phone call from Nicole that we realised that her shot put result hadn’t been entered in the results. Some running around by Nat to Carolyn to get the results entered and then Carolyn running up to the announcers to ensure the correct winner was announced ensured we were all excited at the presentation. First place by a measly 8 points (a win by 0.09%) was cause for the small number that were left to make a lot of noise. From not really looking likely throughout the day it was fantastic to get the win.

Some great efforts from all athletes ensured the club was towards the top of the leader board in both the men’s and women’s competitions (the team manager was known to take a photo of the leaders half way through the day that showed the men on top, sure that this wasn’t going to be the result at the end of the day, although we weren’t far off!). It was important to have everyone that was able to compete do so, as the filling of events was what enabled both teams to perform so well. Great efforts by Nicole Pennings (5 events), Natalie Laurie (7 events) and Jessica Dux (5 events) to show how much they value the club spirit. An extra special mention to Brad Bishop who again broke the club record by jumping 2.10 in the High Jump. Also, Erin Holdway has thrown consistently well all season and again wasn’t far away from her club record in the Hammer Throw. Adrian McLean ran a great 3K (8.32) and then fronted up straight after to run a 1:57 for the 800m.
