The final 4 NOL events will take place in Canberra over the next two weekends.
It looks like a Canberra Cockatoos and Victorian Nuggets showdown in the teams competition in Senior Men, Senior Women and Junior Men. In the Senior Men the Cockatoos have a one point lead over the Nuggets, in the Senior Women the Nuggets have a four point lead over the Cockatoos and in the Junior Men the Cockatoos have a 12 point lead over the Nuggets. In the Junior Women the Nuggets have a 12 point lead over the NSW Stingers.
Both states appear to have strong teams for the events so it may all come down to the relays on the final Sunday. Watch out for a strong showing from the NSW Stingers especially in the Senior Mens class.
In the individual competition most interest is in the Senior Women where Grace Crane and Lizzie Ingham are sharing the lead on 210 points well clear of Jasmine Neve in third place. In the Senior Men Matt Crane has a comfortable lead over Lachlan Dow, Junior Men Ian Lawford has a comfortable lead over Brodie Nankervis and in the Junior Women Heather Muir (Queensland Cyclones) has a comfortable lead over Jacqui Doyle.
Reminder to all Senior and Junior elites there is an important meeting at Canberra Grammar at 1:45pm straight after the Sprint Champs (for about 30 minutes) and that NOL presentations will occur each day for the Sprint, Long, Middle and Relay so could ALL placegetters please be present for these presentations.
