The 74yo crowd favourite and North Beach/Karrinyup Masters Champion Barrie Kernaghan has won the 2015 Melville LAC 120m Gift.
The Australian Masters representative and former Blues President ran 12.05sec from the 39.25m handicap and was very well supported in the heats and final by the large Melville Little Athletics audience. He was joined on the presentation dias by 15yo Junior Blue Daniel Cruickshank who was runner up in the $650 race with team mates Heinrich Rass finishing 5th, Anton De Francesch 6th and John Ackerman in 8th positions.
“I would like to thank all my younger training partners at North Beach for training with me and improving my form” Kernaghan says. “Trying to keep up with them has run me into good shape”.
Cruickshank also finished runner up in the U17 Boys Junior Roar 100m Gift. With Rass taking fourth place.
In the $500 Melville 550m Gift race Jane Stockley came in 4th position with Barrie Kernaghan 7th.
Another great effort in round 4 by all the North Beach Pro Team members!
