SELWYN TIMES Tuesday July 26 2016 17 SPORTS DIALLED IN: Lincoln High School first-five Corey McKay was instrumental in his side’s 19-14 victory. Kicking a perfect 4/4 penalties and 1/1 conversion. PHOTOS: ANG LAPTHORN ​ Lincoln HS score first win in UC Championship • By Gordon Findlater THE WAIT is over for Lincoln High School – the first XV had their first win in the UC Championship on Saturday. The 19-14 win over Ashburton College was their first win in 2016. The team couldn’t have picked a better time, with the match airing live on Sky Sport as part of their first XV rugby coverage. “It was a great win. We were trying not to hype up the game too much during the week and just wanted to treat it like another match,” said Lincoln High School director of rugby Leslie Greenslade. Ashburton scored two tries to Lincoln’s one. Lock Regan Kay grabbed Lincoln’s lone try, with the boot of first-five Corey McKay sealing victory for the home side. McKay was perfect, kicking four penalties from as many attempts. He also kicked a conversion from the touchline following Kay’s try. “He had an outstanding game. He had the ball on a string and made some really crucial kicks,” said Greenslade. It’s been a tough year up to this point for Lincoln, who came into Saturday with 11 defeats and a draw from 12 games. “That’s the pleasing thing for the team, they were shell-shocked following the first game of the year. “They’ve all improved individually and as a team from then on,” said Greenslade. •Results July 23 Christ’s College 33, Shirley BHS 10; Lincoln HS 19, Ashburton College 12; Marlborough BC 20, Burnside HS 17; Christchurch BHS 83, Rangiora HS 13; St Bede’s College 22, St Thomas 12; Timaru BHS 29, Waimea Combined 17; St Andrew’s 51, Roncalli College 15.

Sunday 6 November 21.1km, 10km, 5km & 1400m Kids Dash So many of us think about getting fit or running a marathon but the hardest part is making the commitment. So to avoid yet another year disappearing without getting off the couch sign up for the Shoe Clinic Selwyn Running Festival on 6 November 2016. This local event, held in Leeston, is in its 6th year and gaining momentum. There is a distance for everyone from the Half Marathon to the Kids Dash as well as walking events. There is even a three person team category in the 10km run. The course starts in Leeston and runs the rural roads to Southbridge and beyond. There is no better feeling as you turn the last bend and head for home down the main road of Leeston with the locals lining the street cheering you on. We want to encourage all runners and walkers whether this is your first event or you are an elite runner. By signing up now you have made your first step to achieving your goal. LINCOLN ROAD RUNNERS LRR is the newest of the Road Runner groups and makes use of the roads in and around Lincoln University. We are lucky to have the full support of the University and are super proud to be hosting our weekly community group there. The Rec Centre is the ideal home for the group and the ‘figure 8’ course means you are never far from home. This is a group, like Ellesmere and Malvern Road Runners, that caters to all abilities. It is a fantastic chance for the public to (re)acquaint themselves with the university and we appreciate the use of their grounds and facilities. Everyone is welcome so come along on Tuesday evenings from 5.40pm and join in with the active Lincoln community!!
