Ray Earle scored his first SAAL sash in a very competitive finish to the Loxton Irrigation Centre Over35 300m.
Second was Alex Jefferies finishing fast over the top of his Team Townley training partners Lyn Peake and Brett Stokes.
Pocket Rocket Lyn Peake dived for third and hit the ground hard, and she was too injured to go on the podium.
Brett Stokes, who won this race last year off 55m, had seven more metres to travel this year, and ran a ferociously fast first fifty metres and nearly caught Ray Earle before the turn but was forced to run wide and stayed a half metre behind Ray Earle all the way down the finishing straight, as Ray Earle just overtook Lyn Peake and just held off Alex Jefferies.
Well done Ray.
And Alex and Lyn are both due for sashes soon.
1 Ray Earle off 59
