Victorian Junior Championships

19 Feb 2014

It was like old times at the Victorian Junior Championships. Ivanhoe Athletes won four gold, three silver and two bronze medals and set numerous personal bests, and two club records. We dominated the under 14 division, and it was so good to see the Ivanhoe uniform figuring prominently on the track and in the field.

Rhys Rigoni won the under 14 pole vault, discus throw and javelin throw, and claimed silver in the shot put to be the outstanding male under 14 athlete in the championships. It is even more remarkable given that he has been injured, and this competition was the first he was able to complete almost pain free for nearly 12 months.

The under 14 women’s pole vault resulted in a trifecta for Ivanhoe. Beth Illingworth was first, Grace Dicker second, and Kyla Green third. (Although competing for South Coast, she is a registered second claim member for Ivanhoe).

Beth Illingworth went on to gain a complete set of medals, winning silver in the 200m hurdles and bronze in the 80m hurdles, where her time of 13.57 was a new club record. She also made the final of the 100m where she finished 8th. She set PBs in each of her events.

Grace Dicker started her week-end with the 400m. In the heat she clocked 1:05.13, a huge PB and a new club record. She later finished 5th in the final. She also made the finals of the 100m, setting a PB in the heat, and also the final where she finished 9th, and the 200m where her huge programme caught up with her, and she came in 8th, after a promising heat.

While not qualifying for the finals, Abi Adams ran PBs in the under 15 100m and 200m, which is all that can be asked of athletes in championships.

Flynn Dicker has only been doing pole vault for just over a month, but in the under 16 event, he finished 4th with a national qualifying performance, a tremendous achievement.

Hopefully the club can build on these performances and return to the position we held in the past, as the premier junior club in the State.
