« on: February 26, 2018, 06:00:56 AM »
Three BathurstCC Champions at the 2018 National Junior Track Championships:

Bathurst Junior Track Stars Eliza Bennett, Kalinda Robinson and Tyler Puzicha continue to impress on the National Stage. All 3 winning Gold medals at the 2018 National Junior Track Champs in Melbourne

In the U15 girls Sprint Tyler Puzicha broke her own Australian Record in the 200m Fly Qualifying and then won Gold in the final. Then in the 500m Time Trial she was just outside her own record when defeating former Bathurst Club rider Lucy Stewart (VIC). Tyler also impressive winning Silver in the Kierin.

In the U17s Girls Bathurst riders Eliza Bennett and Kalinda Robinson combined to win Gold in the Team Sprint. Then Eliza took Silver in the Kierin and Bronze in the Sprint while Kalinda won Bronze with the NSW team in the Final Team Pursuit.

It thought to be an unprecedented performance by the Bathurst girls: the club did have 3 Nationals Junior female Champions in Toireasa Gallagher, Natalie Grives and Meg Windsor in the same era in the past but not at the one National Championship.
