The pair finished first and second in the Junior Girls’ National Secondary Schools’ Cross Country Championships at the A&P Showgrounds in Hawera. Sutherland hadn’t beaten McHardy this year, but saved her best for the big stage. “Amy got in front before me. I was running and I was like ‘come on Amy, let’s go, we’re nearly there.’ I think I got a bit of adrenaline or something. I wasn’t expecting to win” Sutherland admitted. McHardy had led all the way. “We both like to take the start and it was a really fast start. We got to the front after about 600 meters. When there was 30-meters to go Ava said ‘well done’ and got past me. We work together, train together and bring out the best in each other. We managed to win the three-person and six-person team races as well which was awesome,” McHardy said. The final time for Sutherland was 11.25.50 with McHardy on 11.27.80. Gabrielle Healy (6th) and Kate McHardy (9th) ensured a Wellington Girls’ sweep of junior honours. A flat start was followed by a downhill section that narrowed out and a short, treacherous, hill climb due to the thick mud and driving rain. “It was really wet and muddy but that made it fun, a real cross country race, a real cool experience,” McHardy enthused. Louise Brabyn (Whanganui Collegiate) was seven seconds adrift in third place. “My favourite training course has eight river crossings and is really fun in the rain. I liked the course,” Sutherland concurred. Both girls are aligned with the Olympic Harriers club. They train and compete in a mixed environment on Tuesday and Thursday nights at Nairnville Park as well as racing most weekends. McHardy beat Sutherland for the Wellington Regional title, but both rely upon coach John Cope for their success. “He makes sure we enjoy it, but when it gets close to competition he challenges us and makes sure we’re putting in the grind,” McHardy said. McHardy first met Cope when she made the Wellington Interregional team while at intermediate. She was fifth in the 2019 Nationals in Timaru and has been the top junior runner in the capital. Sutherland’s parents are eager runners and their daughter got serious about it in 2018. “I had a long-time rival who kept beating me at intermediate. When I beat her the first time I continued to put a lot more effort into it, Sutherland revealed. The next big race on the calendar is the National Secondary Schools’ Road Race in Akaroa, Christchurch in October.

    • Sporting students staying motivated during Lockdown
      • 2 Apr 2020
      • College Sport Wellington
      • What does the lockdown mean for sporting students? How has it affected them and what are they doing to stay fit and motivated? Two students who were preparing to compete about now were Queen Margaret College’s Mollie Nicol, who has just recently made the Long List for the New Zealand Junior Rowing Team, and Wellington Girls’ College Sports Captain and National 800m champion Emma Douglass, who was recently in top form at the Regional Athletics meeting. We put a few questions to each below. Emma Douglass crossing the finish line at Nationals College Sport Wellington: Please tell us what you were preparing for before the Lockdown? Mollie: I was involved with rowing at QMC and we have been training since September last year till mid-march when we found out that due to corona virus that our Maadi Cup Nationals would not continue. We were only two weeks away until we were heading down south to Twizel to compete. Emma: I was training for the final months of the track season. I was due to go over to Australia in March and also California in April to compete and finish my season. Both of these were cancelled prior. CSW: what you are doing to keep fit and train? Mollie: Once school was cleared, I was able to get an erg from school and take it home so I am able to do some ergs. My dad loves to run so my sister, him and I like to go for runs around the neighbourhood. Before the lockdown, we already had a small gym in our garage that included weights and an exercise bike. There are plenty of options for me to keep fit. Emma: Currently, I am going on runs, changing what distance/ terrain/ pace. Along with that, I have set up my wind trainer so I can bike at home. My gym is also doing online sessions which I am doing twice a week CSW: Please share a lockdown sports practice or training tip for your school mates and others out there in the same situation? Mollie: Something that has helped me during the last week was to get into a routine. I know that it is the holidays but I find it easier getting up earlier and getting it done. In the mornings it is better to do something more challenging as you are fresh and then your afternoon session could be hard or something not as hard but you will still gain from it. Emma: I would recommend that people try to just keep your routine and training schedule as normal a possible. This means your body doesn’t get shocked by an increase or decrease in training. For example, if you train every day, try to do something every day to mimic this. This will also keep you fit throughout the lockdown. CSW: Are you in contact with your sporting friends about the above and are you motivating each other remotely? Mollie: Yes I have been in contact with my friends and teammates and they have asked for some training programmes as they are stuck on what to do. Emma: I mostly train alone but for my training where I’m usually with someone I try to keep in touch to stay motivated. I will also track all the workouts I do on my watch so I can account for everything I am doing. I can also send these onto my couch.   Are you a student in Wellington who is involved with sport and wants to feature in an article like this?
