Lionel Fox – Masters Race Report

Another glorious day to grace the 2nd cross country race of the winter season. Sumner had a good turnout sporting two Masters Men’s team and two Senior Men’s teams. Marty Lukes was very excited about the extra twists and turns that he managed to add to the course.

Opening for the Masters Men’s 1 & 2 teams were the two Fitch brothers with Nick Hann running the opening leg for the Senior Men. A close battle between the Senior and Master Men 1 after the first leg with Nick coming in just a few seconds before David even though Nick looked like he may have lost a battle with a tree coming over the line with blood gashing from his knee.

Al Cory Wright took over from David to run lap 2 (only just making the start line) and was hot on the tail of David Slater who took over to run lap 2 for the Senior Men. Al’s superior orienteering skills saw him take the lead from the Senior Men and the battle continued. Solid performances from Nathan Jones and Marty Lukes resulted in the Masters Men’s taking the win for the day in the Master event and 5thteam overall.

The Senior Men continued to battle it out against both the Master and Senior Men’s teams and some good strong performances from Ed Cory Wright (who also ran for the Senior Men’s 2) and Paul Timothy, finishing 6th in the Senior Men and 7th team overall.

The Master Men’s 2 also had some good solid performances from Trevor, Kevin and Ed Jones and finished 11th in Masters Men.

The Masters and Senior women also had some good consistent performances. Running lap 1 for the Masters women’s team was Katherine Fitch. Katherine got the team off to a good start and strong performances from Ann, Cate (who seemed to be smiling throughout the whole run) and Jan saw them take 2nd place in the Master Women’s event.

The Senior Women’s team (which was incidentally made up mostly from Junior women) had a very strong performance. Jess got the team off to a flying start with a very quick time of 21.06 and Marisol running second continued to show strength and form over the tricky terrain. Strong laps 3 from Sophie and Collette who ran almost identical times, saw the Senior Women take out 4th place.

Lionel Fox is a challenging course and Sumner’s performances showed the strength and diversity of our runners. It was great to see some of the younger athletes helping the Senior Men and Women’s teams as well as new members to the club giving it their all.

Race Report – Lionel Fox Relays, Woodend

Well, two out of two is pretty good! Another fine Saturday of excellent racing conditions saw two junior teams compete in the 17 and under 2.5km relay while the older juniors took part in both the senior men & women’s 5km relays.

After forty or so senior & masters teams had pounded their way round the soft, undulating course it was the two younger teams turn around the 2.5km course. But as usual, there was that sand hill that greeted them after the first 50m to get up & over into the forest. This year it appeared to be more like something from the army’s PT course for its young recruits. But as Sumner is use to hills, it seemed not to be an obstacle!

Max & Beth led off the relays and duly came back finishing 7th & 5th respectively in their grades. Max handed over to Sam who had another superb run to be overall fastest grade 11 boy for a second week in a row. He was then followed by Regan who had a good steady run having already played a full game of rugby earlier in the day. Aaron brought the team home in 10th place and finished 2nd overall in the grade 10 boys to back up his last week’s first place in his grade.

In only her second race for the club Maddie headed off to negotiate the course and achieve a good first time. She then passed on to Benita who scooted round and then handed to Tamzin who like her brother had already played a full game of netball earlier in the day. Tamzin held her position and the team finished 16th overall.

Jess, Marisol & Sophie teamed with new member Colette to race as a senior women’s team over a distance of 5km. They finished 4th with Jess in 8th, Marisol 14th, Sophie 19th & Colette 20th.

Nick, Ed & Felix too joined the senior men & had tough competition but all lived to tell the tale.

Thank you Ann for the text and photos.
