States States States!

September has been crammed with Boulder State Titles around Australia including our very own!

Starting in NSW/ACT on Saturday 7 September, 2019 two youth athletes made the trip to NSW to compete: Sam Gullifer who finished 4th in Youth A Male and Maya Stasiuk finishing 1st in Youth C Female. The next State Titles was the Open Boulder Titles held in QLD on Saturday 14 September which did not have representation from Victoria on this occasion.

Last weekend was the Victorian State Titles which board member Yvette Harrison shared with us:

“The Victorian State Titles were held on Saturday with over 100 climbers competing at Northside Boulders Brunswick. From the littlest tackers to the older masters category everyone had a great day thanks to the great setting from our interstate head setter Emma Horan and her team.

The youth categories saw all the gyms represented on the podium and we thank the interstate competitors for coming to participate and get some competition experience up their sleeves and perhaps catch a random prize from our awesome sponsors: Climbing meta, Roctic Climbing, ChalkUp Climbing, Sea to Summit Distribution Australia, Black Diamond, Carman’s Kitchen and Tokyo Powder Industries.

The Opens did not disappoint through finals with plenty of excitement from all the athletes. Top Victorian athletes were Oceana Mackenzie 1st, Sarah Davies 2nd and Grace Crowley 3rd for Open A Female. And in Open A Male: Campbell Harrison 1st, Ned Middlehurst 2nd and Nick Churchill 3rd.

Thank you again to our volunteers. Without you all these events cannot run as smoothly as they do. Thank you to Northside for hosting this event, your generosity is much appreciated and thank you to our sponsors for your generous prize donations.”

And to cap off the month Tasmania will be holding the final states of the month from 27 – 28 September, 2019.  Good luck to all the athletes!
