Amanda Broughton and Tim Hodge win Vosseler Shield races
Wellington Scottish produced a clean sweep of the main races at the Vosseler Shield on Saturday as Amanda Broughton and Tim Hodge claimed the senior titles.
Broughton held a steady lead over Olympic's Jo Crawford for much of the 5-kilometre race to win in a time of 23 minutes, 23 seconds. Crawford closed strongly to finish second, just eight seconds behind, with almost a minute back to her Olympic team-mate, Lizzy Bunckenburg, in third.
Hodge won his second straight senior men's title in comfortable fashion.
His winning time off 40.45 over the 10km course was three seconds quicker than his effort to win last year.
Young Wellington Harrier Nathan Tse continued to show his strong form this year to run into second, 43 seconds behind Hodge, with Trentham's Brian Garmonsway third.
Scottish won both of the team races in those senior divisions.
In the women's under-20 race, Scottish's Jess Kikstra grabbed the closest win of the day as she beat Harrier's Kelsey Forman by just two seconds.
Those same club colours were to the fore in the men's under-20 race, with Scottish again the winner as Harry Burnard held out Rusi Jagose to win by eight seconds.
Stephen Day won the master's 40 event for Scottish, while Kapiti's Renae Creser was the winner of the women's master's 40 event.
