Women shine at Lighthouse race

17 March 2008

Winning women: Nicola Collins and Amy Aronson steered the UCT women's team to its fourth consecutive win at the Men's Health Lighthouse 10km road race.

There's obviously something about the Men's Health Lighthouse 10km road race that appeals to the women's athletics team. A four-strong team won the women's event in Green Point on 5 March - UCT's fourth win on the trot.

Which is surprising, says coach James Evans, as the UCT team has been chopped and changed just about every year. Nicola Collins, the Western Province 10 000m champion, has been the only common denominator over the four years.

Teammate Amy Aronson picked up her second winning medal, as she was part of the 2007 quartet. This year Collins and Aronson were joined by American exchange students Ariane Mohr and Caroline Ott.
