Illawong athletes were formidable competitors at the recent 2017 NSW Open Championships with many fine performances.

Our elite sprinter and hurdler, Abbie Taddeo, performed extremely well and finished with two state medals. She won the Women's 100m in a time of 12.00s and was the second NSW runner to finish the 100m Hurdles. Her time was 13.71s. Illawong was especially well represented in the Women's 100m with seven athletes in the heats. All seven made it through to the semi finals and Abbie, Chloe Mannix-Powell and Luisa Healey made it into the final. Chloe and Luisa came 5th and 6th.

Another outstanding performance was provided by 12 year old Imogen Stewart. Imogen ran in the Open Women's 1500m heats in a time of 4:33.74. This time was good enough to qualify for the final, where she finish in sixth place after running improving on her heat time with 4:31.26.

At the opposite end of the age sprectum, Brian Mackie, came second in the 55 to 59 age group for the 10,000m run.

Overall, eleven athletes made it into finals, which is an impressive result.
