  3. Hough triumphant at Hunter Track Classic

SUSF Elite Athlete Program (EAP) scholarship holder and Sydney University Athletics Club (SUAC) sprinter Nicholas Hough was the standout performer at the weekends Hunter Track Classic, winning the 110m hurdles and recording a time just outside of a Commonwealth Games B standard.

Running into a stiff headwind, the 2013 SUSF Male Blue of the Year (studying a Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Laws) won the event with a time of 14.30.

In the women’s 100m sprint hurdles fellow SUSF EAP scholarship holder Michelle Jenneke (Bachelor of Mechatronic Engineering) posted her season’s best time at the distance, running a slick 13.64 to finish second.

Annie Rubie (Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Sciences) finished second behind University of Queensland rival Caitlin Seargent in the women’s 400m. Rubie ran a blistering first 200m and lead into the home straight but had probably spent too much fuel early to hold off Seargent.

Also finishing second on the night was Alix Kennedy (Bachelor of Commerce/Laws) who was only a couple of meters away from securing her own Commonwealth Games entry standard in the discus. Kennedy threw 52.12m.

Milly Clark (Bachelor of Applied Science/Masters of Nutrition) was second in the 3000m steeplechase (10.13.18), a solid first up run in very hot conditions.

Other SUAC competitors included Richard Haggie (third in 400m), Lewis Horenko (fourth in 400m), Miles Cole-Clarke (fourth in high jump), Jack Colreavy (fourth in steeplechase), Kelly Young (sixth in 800m), Josh Tassell (sixth in 200m), Jo Cubis (seventh in 800m), Melinda Witchard (13th in 1500m) and Hugh Williams (15th in 3000m).

Cole-Clark (Bachelor of Science), Tassell (Bachelor of International and Global Studies), Witchard (Masters of Physiotherapy) and Williams (Masters of Physiotherapy) are all SUSF EAP scholarship holders.

SUAC will next compete at Day 2 of the NSW Club Championships on Feb 1st at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre (SOPAC).
