Hill-City dominates Hurring relays

Hill City-University locked up all three trophies on offer at the Caledonian Ground in Dunedin on Saturday.

The club won both the men’s and women’s divisions, as well as the overall Hurring Memorial Relay Trophy.

It scored 40 points in the women’s category, beating Taieri (32) and Caversham (26).

On the men’s side, its 44 points helped it comfortably beat Taieri’s 28 and Caversham’s 22.

In the overall trophy it finished with 112 points, edging Taieri on 104 and Caversham on 60.

Taieri made a strong challenge in the field, but it was on the track that HCU did its damage. There it won five of the six relays, the two 4x200m relays by less than a second.

Its team of Sophie Miller, Keira McNeill, Jesika Sebelin and Rosie Elliott finished in 1min 47.97sec to edge Taieri’s 1min 48.52sec.

Its men’s team of Cameron Moffitt, Cameron Miller, Jedidiah Thompson-Fawcett and Nathan MacDonell ran 1min 34.18sec to sneak past Taieri’s 1min 34.70sec.

Taieri dominated the long jump as Felix McDonald’s 6.54m was the best of the men’s, while it had the five best women, of whom Emma McKay’s 4.84m leap was the farthest.

Cameron Moffitt (HCU) and Zharna Beattie (Taieri) had the best shot put throws with 13.93m and 12.87m respectively.

It was the last meeting before the Christmas break.
