Success at the Ekka for NSW competitors

21 September 2022

The Ekka proved to be another successful show for NSW axewomen and men, but none more so than the following competitors.

Maddie Edwards (pictured with her dad) had an outstanding show, taking out first place in both women's championship sawing events – the Single Handed and the Jill and Jill Double Handed Sawing, where she teamed up with Queensland's Anne Patterson. To top off these great results, Maddie was also named 'Best and Fairest'.


Meanwhile Austin Scrivener made it back-to-back 'Most Successful Competitor' titles after taking out the win at this year's Ekka, as well as earlier this year at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
