State Masters Championships 2014 Results

~ Warwick Everingham

 

Finally, after four weekends, the State Titles is over. What does SLSA NSW think they are doing? This event has been rattling on for a month. Coogee has done pretty well over in this time and we have been bringing it to you in instalments each week as the event dictates. The final instalment is one of the best as we have come to expect from our masters competitors.

Coogee finished in 3rd place overall from Queenscliff and Avoca. Sixy clubs competed in the Masters Titles. Or, as Rob IIlidge likes to put it, “Kicked it well and truly - great effort team. Juniors 9th + opens 11th + masters 3rd = Coogee 7.667th in NSW - well done!”

Our 2k runners did well as they always do winning three races and we had plenty of other gold in the water, both surf and craft. We also had a board relay team pick up a 1st place. Our craft area is functioning much better these days thanks to the work of Michael Cantarella and Andrew Bargenda.

A lot of us have already seen some pictures posted on Facebook. They are reproduced here. Most images from masters’ competition show people with smiles on their faces, such joy is to be found in competing in our later years. Or is it grimacing from the pain of it all. On that score, we wish Hips a speedy recovery from his sprained ankle.
