NoteTrinity's men finally broke the sequence of five successive wins by UCD in the 11th Colours Match. DUHAC's charge was led by John Dillon who registered a remarkable quadruple of track wins in the 100y, 220y, 440y and 120y hurdles, and in the 100y broke the meeting record set by Victor Maniak at the first ever Colours Match ten years previously. He also did a personal best in the 120y hurdles. As the Intervarsities 440y hurdles champion and the then National record holder, Dillon passed up his favourite event to concentrate on winning these other events for the Trinity team. It was a tactical master-stroke! Finding inspiration from Dillon's performances, TCD won all the track events except the relay, albeit only one event with maximum points. John McIntyre, Trinity's Captain, took a track double in the 800y and the 1 mile and Robert Walker took Trinity's first ever win in the 3 miles at a Colours Match in College Park. UCD came roaring back in the field events, winning six of the seven disciplines, but again only one with maximum points. The final event to conclude at the meeting was the javelin, with TCD on 82 pts and UCD on 80 pts. Emmanuel Areo, Trinity's Vice-Captain, threw a personal best to win and thereby clinch the match, with Tim O'Connor taking 2nd place to close out the match with maximum points in the event. A meeting's record was set by UCD in the 4 x 110y relay and by David Booth (UCD) in the Pole Vault. Leo Galvin (UCD) achieved a double win in Shot Putt and Discus. TCD also won the women's match for the third successive year, winning all events barring the Discus, including three maximum point shut outs. Patricia Wilson achieved a double win in the 220y and 440y.
