Despite the absence of many of our best runners, Box Hill teams performed well in the Harcourt to Bendigo (Coliban) relays on Saturday 24 June 2006.
The Highlight of the day was an outstanding 2nd place by our women’s division 1 team. Amanda Harper, Kate Wall, Rachel Johnson, Alice Baquie and Heidi Riordan all ran well to finish 2nd in what turned out to be a 3-way battle between Box Hill, Sandringham and Knox. Box Hill has now closed started to close the gap on ladder leaders Glenhuntly (who finished 4th). We are 2nd on the ladder and still in with a chance of winning the women’s division 1 premiership.
Our division 1 men’s team finished 6th against very tough opposition, with the likes of Lee Troop and Steve Moneghetti and full strength teams from Glenhuntly and Doncaster.
Although our team of Duayne Christou, Barry Lynch, Andrew White, Ruben Arunasalam, Daniel Clark, Adrian Vincent and Navin Arunasalam had an average age of less than 21 they actually ran faster than last years team (last year our team finished 2nd) a good effort and a great sign for the future.
In division 3, the team of Michael Bourne, Scott Boxshall, Paul Boxshall, Graeme Olden and Chris O’Connor came through to finish in a creditable 3rd place.
