Champs 2022 Celebration Highlights
Excelsior's Lady Eagles regains their Corporate Area title Championships
The Lady Eagles retained the corporate area title at the 2022 Champs staging amassing 132 points. They won 18 finals and took their sixth hold on this title.
Some of the Eagles victory highlights were Shelly-Ann Taylor erasing the Girl's Class Three 80m Hurdles title, the sprint medley and the 4x400m relay open.
Excelsior have regained the ISSA Grace Shield Under-19 title after dethroning Innswood by a massive 305 runs on Thursday's last day of their 3-day final at the Melbourne Oval. Innswood, who resumed the final day on 9-1 chasing an improbable 546 for victory, were dismissed for 240.
Lacrosse girls' final, Excelsior ,Amanda Graham-Golding-coached team, was able to stave off the challenge from Wolmer's to retain the title they won for the first time last year.
The champions, who had beaten Wolmer's quite easily earlier this season, found their opponents a much more difficult nut to crack in the final.
Excelsior returned a much different team in the second half and their obvious quality shun through, as they who took control of the game in the latter half to ensure the trophy returned to 137 Mountain View Avenue.
