Victoria Big Winners In Hugely Successful 2021 National League Season

Victoria has just completed one of its best ever National League seasons!  After all the disappointment and frustration of 2020, Victoria has taken out the Senior Men and Junior Men titles, and were runners up in Senior Women.
After NOL rounds in Victoria in March, at Easter in NSW, then Renmark in SA, the 2021 competition concluded with an exciting final weekend, including the deciding Relay, in the sand dune terrain at Broulee, NSW.  The Senior Men were unbackable favourites, but the Junior Men needed to beat NSW in the Relay to take the title.  It was a three way race for the Senior Womens title going into the Relay, with Canberra emerging the winners.
Individual NOL winners included Aston Key taking out the Senior Men’s title with 8 wins from 10 rounds! Patrick Jaffe and Brodie Nankervis made it a clean sweep for the Vics in this class. They were strongly supported throughout the series by Bruce Arthur, David Brownridge and Simon Rouse.  The Senior Women were well represented by Asha Steer, Aislinn Prendergast, Clare Brownridge and Kathryn Preston.  Jensen Key finished 3rd in the Junior Men’s rankings, with Mason Arthur, Callum White, Brody McCarthy and Torren Arthur all contributing to a fantastic team effort.  Milla Key and Sophie Taverna both had some really strong performances in the Junior Women.
In other exciting news, Aston, Patrick, Brodie and Jensen have all been named in Australia’s two Merit Squads, which is the highest honour of representation in 2021, with no teams being sent to WOC or JWOC this year.
Congratulations to everyone that’s been part of the outstanding Vic squad this season!
