K&P tough it out to win the division: U17/U20 YDL Team Croydon 24th July 2016

In the final UAG match in the YDL for the 2016 season, K&P managed to hold onto fourth place, while Camberley and Woking were only able to secure second. This meant that as K&P started the day with a two point cushion over C&W, we held on to win the division on match points scored. This was a terrific result particularly as holidays had left the team short of both numbers and experience.

Winning the division shows both the good quality of the U17/U20 athletes at K&P, but also their willingness to turn out consistently and take on unfamiliar events to gain points. Once again we gained a full complement of officiating points at Croydon, which is testament to the vital support from parents and helpers.

The team managed 14 PBs on the day, including a super 4.30m pole vault (AAA Grade 3) from Will Gwynne. Will has had a fantastic season taking his pole vault up from a best of 3.80m (outdoor) in 2015. In addition, Mica Powell’s U17W 300m run at 41.16s was a fantastic AAA Grade 1. In total, there were 5 A string first places: Harry Reynolds (U20M 800m); Will Gwynne (U20M PV); Ellie Arnfield (U20W 800m); Mica Powell (U17W 300m); and, Kathryn Bartle (U17W 1500m SC).

As ever there were many un-sung performances in unfamiliar events with athletes scoring vital points –so congratulations to all participated. We also finally managed to field the much anticipated 4 x 400M relay team of Eleanors: Arnfield, Bartle, Church and McDonnell. For the record, they came second!

A huge thank you also to all those who helped with officiating: Susanne Dietrich, Susan Hobart, Mark Reynolds, Jane Newell, Liz Denham, Simon Church, Will Gwynne, Hattie Bartle, and timekeeper

Jonathon Bartle. The officiating points earnt during the course of the season have been vital, and with such help these competitions simply could not take place.

The team was: U17 Women: Mica Powell, Leila Legris, Jessica Westley, Rhianna Reynolds, Eleanor Bartle, Kathryn Bartle, Eleanor Church, Eleanor McDonnell, Amy Vallintine, Charlotte Willis-Sloanes, Anya Beri U20 Women: Ellie Arnfield, Jody Edwards U17 Men: George Chaplin, Gabriel Lewis, Sol Harris-Woodfin, Sam Shaw, Max Parkinson U20 Men: Max Perez-Diaz, Will Gwynne, Harry Reynolds, Aranan Wijayasooria, Oscar Tyrrell, Leon Newell
