We came, we saw and we conquered bringing home the prized 4 x 200 metres, Parkdale Gift for 2019.

The Team comprising  veteran Chris Mangoni, and young guns Damon Schultz, Ryan Gray,  and Nick Grech, came from behind to stun the large crowd and the commentator with a stirring victory.

Mango led our charge albeit a little bit slowly, and at the end of the first 200 we found ourselves in 5th spot, about 20 metres behind, Damon made up plenty of ground and by the half way mark we had moved up to 3rd place, now only 15 metres adrift,  Ryan Gray who the commentator described as a 10.1 runner had us in 2nd spot only some 5 metres behind at the final change, and so it came down the youngest of the group Nick Grech and, like a true Tiger, stormed home to give the boys a convincing and much deserved victory.

This was a fantastic achievement by the Boys who all represented our Club and themselves proudly to bring home the first of what all Tigers hope will be plenty more silverware in 2019.
