Masters XCR ’13 Season Report

Hi everyone,
Just a quick report on proceedings from our Winter Presentation Night on Saturday…
Paul Strangio is once again a very deserving winner of our Masters Winter Champion award.
Life member Alan Irwin in full flight

Paul ran in all 9 events this season, including the 6 individual races. He finished with four 2nds, one 3rd and one 5th place in the 50-54 age group, including twice running second behind Steve Moneghetti, at Lake Wendouree and Bundoora.

Paul finished as the highest points scorer in the 50-54 category, and we congratulate him for his all-round consistency. Unfortunately, due to a very obscure and seemingly unfair rule which states that only the top 5 performances count, Paul was demoted to second place due to another runner have a better top 5 total.
Honourable mentions went to Craig Semple who won two races in the 40-44 category but was only able to compete in one other race due to injury (3rd at Lake Wendouree) and Chris Wardlaw who won the only three races he entered, and finished 3rd in the 60+ category.
The Eric Sigmont Award for the Best Performer in 60+ was won for the second successive year by Len Johnson.
Len finished second overall on the 60+ Individual Ladder with a 2nd place at Brimbank, along with a 3rd, two 4ths and a 6th place in the individual events. He finished only 1 point from the winner of the division.
Congratulations also to Chris Murphy and Paul Strangio who received Participation Awards for completing in all 9 events this season. Well done chaps!
Well done once again to everyone who completed this year. Unfortunately the two Tonys, Doran and Wilson, were unable to compete this year, but we hope to see them and everyone else out there again next season.
