State runners coach Holroyd
Top State competitors will give Holroyd Amateur Athletic Club a boost next season with coaching assistance.
Reg Tarte will give advice to the club’s walkers and Greg Nicol will coach the javelin throwers. His influence has already shown in the times of Holroyd members Richard Kidd and Russell Jenkins, both 14-year-olds.
Russell Jenkins recently won the Western Suburbs and NSW Walkers’ Club trophy in the fast time of 28 minutes, 44 seconds for three miles. Jenkins has improved his time over distance events by two minutes a mile. Officials claim this improvement should lead to his selection in the NSW sub-junior team (under 17) soon.
The club hopes to improve in javelin events following the coaching by Greg Nicol. He is the reigning State champion and has also won the decathlon title in this State. The club’s coaching on Tuesday and Thursday nights is at present serving a dual purpose.
