Ballarat teen Holly Dobbyn wins Stawell Women's Gift

HOLLY Dobbyn has stamped her authority at the 2014 Stawell Women's Gift with a dominant win in the final.

The 17-year-old, from Ballarat, defeated fellow teenager Sarah Blizzard with a time of 13.30.

Blizzard ran a time of 13.44 while Ballarat's Kate Jones (13.59) backed up the teenage quinella with a third placing.

"Eight weeks ago or a bit further I did my hammy so I've worked pretty hard to get here," Dobbyn said post race.

Jones got to the final the hard way after breaking early and getting docked one yard in her semi-final.

She subsequently made the cut as one of the final five qualifiers.
