Jeremy Maranan (5.53m) won the Long Jump handsomely on his first jump.

Stephen Fraser (44.79m) continued his dominance in the Discus with another big throw in the lead up to the ACT All Schools Championships this month.

It was in the Hammer throw though where Stephen Fraser (41.68m) beat his own club record of 41.22m showing what fine form he is in at the moment.

Hayden Todd (56.75s) was just outside the club 400m record held since the 1987/88 season of 56.14s. Chloe Edwards (1:18.62) did well in her first AACT High Noon comp for the season too. Mark Rossiter (54.12s) was the fastest in the men and closely followed by Spencer Cox (57.07s).

In the 200m Mark Rossiter (24.61s) was the fastest of the Ginninderra athletes with Harry Francis (25.55s), Caleb Joliffe (25.87s and new PB), Chloe Edwards (33.33s and third fastest woman) and Hayden Todd (26.68s) all backing up well following their earlier performances. Mark had a fantastic day doing the treble of the 100m, 200m and the 400m on the same program. Great effort!

Community Sports Gala Day – 15 September 2018

Today was an absolute blast. The Primary Schools Team Challenge was just one of a number of highlights of the day. We hope all the school teams, parents and volunteers enjoyed their morning as much as we did.

Thank you to UC Capitals, the Brumbies, the Brave, ACT Netball, Athletics ACT, Little Athletics ACT too for their support.

The morning got underway with a welcome by the Deputy Chief Minister of the ACT Yvette Berry. It was wonderful to see so many people getting behind the Community Sports Gala Day. Minister Berry's support is so very appreciated for everything that she and the ACT Government do for grassroots sport.

The day of course would not have been a success that it was without the support of our sponsors including event day sponsors Audi Centre Canberra, Kidspace Occupational Therapy, LGR Productions, Capital Clinic Physiotherapy, The Smart Centre Massage and Rehabilitation, and Hart Sport. We also would like to thank the support of Coles Belconnen, Kmart and Bunnings. Carol Jennings was also very generous and we would like to thank you for all that you did.

Our local National Sporting teams were not the only stars out today. There wasn't one but a plethora of World Athletics Champions on show including Jayden Sawyer, Vanessa Low, Scott Reardon, Sue Powell and our own Cameron Crombie. Cam's own All Stars team featured World Championship representatives Lauren Wells and Brittany McGowan, and World Uni rep Angus Gould, Commonwealth Games rep Vivian Williams and middle distance emerging talent Reece Langdon. The showcase 100m handicap race featured Ginninderra Athletics Premium Sponsor Jake Battenally from Ray White Belconnen up against Lauren Wells and Vivian Williams.

Carly Wilson from the UC Capitals was the MC for the day and did an outstanding job alongside Cameron Crombie who was coordinating activities on the ground. They were supported by a large cohort of volunteers from Ginninderra Athletics who hosted the sports day.

Thanks also to the volunteers from the University of Canberra's Education, Sports Science and Health faculties. Lindsay Mitton was one of the dedicated Event Managers and Organisers along with Fiona Jarvis, Debra Evans and Paul Fowler.

The day also featured a presentation from the Fire Brigade, stalls from Every Chance to Play, Cancer Council, Belconnen Community Services, Heart Foundation and the UC Athletics Academy.

There were many moments of great sportsmanship and athletics brilliance, with every team demonstrating how to have fun and support one another.

The overall results in the Primary Schools Team Challenge had Miles Franklin finish first in the Boys, followed by Weetangera (second) and Radford Junior College (third). In the Girls Miles Franklin again took the Gold closely followed by Radford (second) and Yass Public (third). Macgregor had 6 teams in the competition and that is worthy of a special mention itself.

Congratulations to every team and team member. You were all outstanding. Hope to see you all again really soon. For photos check out Facebook.

Neil Thomas’ return to athletics after 5 months off due to a broken leg looks like he will return stronger and better by the time summer series has finished.
